Next, rather last
point to be visited is Narayanagiri. It is the highest peak of Tirumala, where the Narayana padas
carved on a circular stone are kept in a beautiful mandap artistically built.
This stone is a standing proof of the Tirumala's glorious antiquity. Testified
by the anthropological evidence; preserved in the temple museum. By virtue of
being the highest point of Tirumala, it unfolds the fantastic panoramic vision of temple town on all sides. Surveying it one can
turn oblivious of the surroundings
even. Now move to many man-made marvels heightening the beauty of this sacred
hill Tirumala scattered around the temple. The Gitopadesa chariot near
Garudadrinagar cottages, and the majestic Vaishnavate symbols, like conch disc
on either side of the Tripundram leave unforgettable imprints on the minds, when
illuminated during the nights. No pilgrim returns home without enjoying the
ethereal charm of these objects. As theta are lying in the vast lush green lawns
with plants, pilgrims sit here till late in the night enjoying their beauty.
They also visit the Temple Art Museum recently built lying near the Karnataka
Choultry. This latest addition to the hills is an invaluable asset to the
scholars and laymen. The beautiful photographs in their multi - colours delight
the visitors, and reference books procured and preserved are extremely useful to
know about temple history. So visit pays and spending an hour or so richly
rewards. Shall we?'
not Uncle, let us then hurry to them before we go to Gitopadesam and
