It is the ancient pedestrian path to go to Tirumala which is kept open during the day time only. It took almost two hours for me to reach Tirumala, without any long break (more than 5 min.).

Great place of worship for Hindus. People visit in large numbers daily. There is at least 100,000 pilgrims on normal day. On festival days it is well over a million. We had a wonder darshan of the Lord Balaji.
