ANANDA NILAYAM TIRUMALA

The golden abode of the Lord of the universe is Ananda Nilaya. It is the sacred place where the Lord Venkateswara receives his ‘Poojas’ and ‘archanas’. The golden gopuram on this AnandaNilaya is the ‘Ananda Nilaya Vimana’ which is also known as Bangaru Gopura Vimanam. As per mythology, Garuthmantha (Vehicle of Sri Vishnu) brought this Ananda Nilaya Vimanam from Vaikuntam (the celestial abode of Vishnu) and consecrated it in this sacred place as desired by Lord Sri Vishnu. A true devotee alone is able to see the actual Vimanam brought from Vaikuntam. To the ordinary people, he appears as a statue and the Vimana is visible to them as golden gopura. If one has a firm belief in him this ‘Vimana’ becomes visible to him/her (Nothing is impossible). Even ‘Vamana Purana’ has recorded this. Helicopters and aeroplanes are not allowed to fly over Venkatachalam where Ananda Nilaya is located. On Narayanagiri, signal towers are arranged for helping the pilots to keep away from this location. No one is permitted to land his aeroplane or helicopter on the Tirumala Hills. Not even the Prime Minister, Chief Minister or President can do it. Every one has to reach Tirumala by foot or by road from Tirupati. Many great people, sages, emperors and devotees have had a darshan of this Vimanam and served the Lord. Some of these devotees developed this ‘gopuram’ and got it gold plated.
