There aren't really "moderators" here, it's pretty much a community process. See Wikitravel:Votes for deletion for the deletion process, but you might want to read Wikitravel:What is an article? first. My inclination would be that there should be two articles, one for Tirupati and one for Tirumala. What is the reasoning for combining these places into one article? -- Ryan 00:33, 5 Nov 2005 (EST)
Tirupati is a major temple on Tirumala hill and there is a township on Tirumala, basically supporting the temple. If Tirumala were a destination of its own, then Tirupati could have been an article under the "really large attraction" exception. But the temple overshadows the town, so it makes sense to have one article --Ravikiran 00:57, 5 Nov 2005 (EST)
It sounds like there should be one article, Tirumala, since that is the actual destination (see Wikitravel:What is an article? for more), and Tirupati would be a large attraction. Even if it "overshadows" the town in terms of interest, the town is still where visitors will sleep, eat, etc. The only exception would be if the temple were a temple complex on scale with Angkor Wat or a wildlife area with it's own accomidations such as the Grand Canyon or Chitwan. I'll go ahead and add this to VfD if it hasn't been done yet. Majnoona 08:33, 5 Nov 2005 (EST)
I was misinformed on this. Tirupati is in fact the town at the foothills of Tirumala hills. The temple is on top of Tirumala. The title should be Tirupati, not Tirumala. When the article on the temple gets written under the "large attraction" exception, Tirumala can get redirected to it. --Ravikiran 10:42, 14 Jan 2006 (EST)
I removed the history section that had been copied from . But it is still worth writing up the history of the place in your own words. I will do it sometime if no one attempts it earlier. --Ravikiran 11:38, 27 Dec 2005 (EST)
I removewd the following list of tempels etc from the main aticle. A bland list like this with no details, location or description is pointless. If you know any of these places, please add details and reinstate to the article.
