a ten minute walk from Shilathoranam road, the visitor comes to
a road junction. One road leads to Dharmagiri and the other to the
highest peak of Tirumala Hills, Narayanagiri. Shri Narayana Pada
is found here.
A scripture in the temple museum describes this place as "it
is an anthropological evidence of the hoary antiquity of Tirumala.
The wheel carved therein represents Narayana, the aspects of Suryanarayana,
worshipped by the early men".
Sri Narayana Padam
Being the highest point on the Tirumala, Narayanagiri offers
fantastic panoramic view of the hills. It is convenient to engage
a private taxi or van to visit Narayanagiri, Dharmagiri and Shilathoranam.
For a two hour up and down trip the fare could be Rs.200/- to
Rs. 300/- depending on the number of persons.
