Devotees visiting AMMA have been increasing by the day. There were various class of devotees visitng – Infants to Senior Citizens, Students to Retirees, Professionals etc.,

They wanted to live in peaceful atmosphere blessed with the presence of AMMA in Jillellamudi for longer duration.
Andarillu is already full with inmates, devotees and employees and there was not much space for the elderly to stay comfortably.

Adaranalayam means Abode of Empathy. AMMA had given clear mandate that the Adaranalayam should have proper facilities and inmates should be taken complete and proper care with regard to their every need. The food was ordered to be in such a way to suit the individual needs even if it requires additional effort and cost. She directed Dr Achanta Kesava Rao to ensure the implementation of the direcctions in letter and spirit.
Adaranalayam had been developed with enthusiasm and love and today it is a reality. The inmates will be seeing AMMA from the front side of their place and the lush green fields behind give them fresh and healthy air.
