I'm planning to visit Andhra Pradesh in February and had thought of visit Tirupathi then going onto Sri Kalahasti. while doing some research I read that there had been some damage to the temple back in May.

Does anyone have any up to-date info?

Is it still worth visiting ?

The Gopuram is the doorway arch on the outermost compound wall that collapsed. It was 500 years old. The temple itself is intact and can be visited.

Some years ago we visited Sri Kalahasti, and a lot of other temples around Tirupati on a day trip ( by bus) with the APTDC.

@ShirleyD: Thats a good suggestion by @Vonkla. Suggest you do that as well. Tirupati/Tirumala and the surrounding towns/temples receive HUGE number of pilgrims and doing them alone will be a major hassle. Better use the APTDC tour and they will manage everything.
