" After availing the darsan of various such divinities along the flight of stairs and covering a long distance, we come to the Galigopuram.

It is a majestic tower adorned on its top with holy Tripundram- triple lines buffeted by conch and disc, and fitted with colourful bulbs. During nights, due to its elevation, it is seen for miles afar and the pious pilgrims traveling in the vehicles rend the sky with shuts of  'Govinda, Govinda', when it comes into their view. The sleeping copassengers joining them utter loudly in ecstatic delight, heralding, as it were, their coming to Balaji Bhaghavan. For the inhabitants of Tirupathi, it is a divine sight and on seeing it against the backdrop of dark sky, they join palms and offer mental prayers.

Here at this stop-over there are many worth-seeing spots sagaciously planned and superbly maintained by the refined temple authorities. There is a gigantic statue of Hanuman in standing posture with palms joined, appearing as it were paying homage to the ardent devotees ascending with untold hardships. Instinctively every pilgrim offers obeisance standing near the high pedestal.
