Trains for Puttaparthi

Puttaparthi, abode of Sri Sathya Sai Baba, in Andhra Pradesh is an internationally popular pilgrim town. It is well connected by road, rail and air.The railway station is called Sri Sathya Sai Prashanthi Nilayam. Superfast and Rajdhani Express trains to and from Bangalore run through this station. So devotees from the north, the west and Andhra Pradesh are well-served by these trains. However, people from Kerala, Madurai and Coimbatore have no direct access to this station.They have to go to Bangalore and change trains or go to Dharmavaram and go to Puttaparthi by bus.

Following trains which originate from Nagercoil and Coimbatore run through Penukonda and Dharmavaram stations to reach their terminals: Nagercoil-Mumbai Express; Coimbatore-Rajkot Express; Coimbatore-H.Nizamuddin Kongu Express; Coimbatore- Tilak Kurla Express. Other superfast and Rajdhani Express trains take a diversion from Penukonda to go to SSS Prasanthi Nilayam before going to Dharmavaram.

The aforesaid four trains at present go through Penukonda and then to Dharmavaram.

There is no stop in between. These trains can also be made to go from Penukonda to Dharmavaram via SSS Prashanthi Nilayam. This change will enable devotees from Kerala and Tamil Nadu to have direct access to SSS Prashanthi Nilayam thereby saving them hassles of changing trains and bus.
