Annamayya kaalibaata in Alipiri – Tirumala foot road going to be developed | Nearly Rs 3 crore is the estimated cost of these development works of Annamayya kaalibaata
Annamayya baata which is not in use in the Alipiri – Tirumala foot road is going to be renovated. This route was considered dangerous as devotees were frequently slipping down in the Annamayaa kaalibaata (Awwachari kona) between Narasimhaswamy temple and Akkagaarla temple. When the first Ghat road came into usage, on 10th April, 1944, devotees stopped using Annamayya food road. Devotees started using the Ghat road leaving the 1 km long Annamayya kaalibaata. This led to increase in road accidents. To prevent these accidents, Annamayya kaalibaata is going to be developed and a foot over bridge is going to be built in the most dangerous 150mtr range kaalibaata. To prevent devotees from suffering from heat and rain, a shelter is being built in this route and other facilities are also going to be provided. Pedestrian devotees only will be allowed in the Mokaalla parvatam road and the road is also going to be expanded. Cost of all these works are expected to be nearly Rs.3 crores, estimate engineering experts. The decision to developed roads has been taken nearly after 65 years, and the devotees are happy about it.
