In 2012, Tirupati hosted the three-day World Telugu Conference . Telugu is one of the oldest classical languages of India. The word ‘Telugu’ was probably derived from trilinga or Trilinga desa. According to legend, Lord Shiva descended as linga on three mountains, Kaleswara, Srisaila and Bhimeswara, dotting the Telugu region. Experts believe that Telugu was split from Proto-Dravidian languages between 1500 and 1000 BC.
