If you want to travel from GTL/GY/ATP to YNK and want to book tickets, you can't book them as it would always be not available because of zonal/distance restrictions. But you can book a ticket upto SBC on IRCTC and getdown at where ever you want. I usually do it for my mom under lower berth quota and ask her to get down at YNK.

Anantapur on the SBC-KCG mainline is the nearest railhead to Pennahobilam, in Anantapuram District of AP a well known Piligrim Center and sightseeing place. After alighting at the railway station, walk to the Arts College Bus stop and take any bus going to Uravakonda or Bellary. It falls 40 kms from the railway station. Next nearest railhead is GTL-Guntakal on the CSTM-MAS main line at 45 kms by road via Uravakonda.

means = Big Ahobilam. It is very much similar to the Ahobilam temple of Kurnool District. Here the main deity is Ugra Narasimha with Adi lakshmi & Chenchu Lakshmi as his wives. Its located on the banks of River Pennar and is close to a waterfall on the river pennar which also has a balancing reservoir (PABR Dam) built across. This along with Penakacherla dam (MPR Dam) are very famous day outing & picnic spots for locals. Penakacherla dam is about 23 kms from here for which the nearest rail head would be Garladinne GDE.

You can order food to your train through TravelKhana.com.... You have many non veg varieties... If you want to explore the Spicy Hot Rayalaseema Non-Veg food.... This is the only place as of now in the railway map apart from Renigunta...Prefer Anantapur over Renigunta to taste the authentic Rayalaseema non-veg. Andhra Chicken & Mutton Curry with Plain Rice is the best of the lot... Everything else would be secondary...
Note: Minimum Order is 400... which means this would work only for 3 or more passenger groups.
For Veggies,
Veg

Combo meal is the best from the Menu

I think he meant Rayalaseema in general. I once had good food at Cuddapah (inside town not station).

Jay got it right.. That's exactly what I meant... Didn't mean that someone should not have lunch in RU but have it ATP... Both practically & theoretically its not possible. Practically there is no train that connects both the stations. Theoretically, even if there is a train, one can have food in both stations choosing between lunch & dinner since both are 6-7 hrs apart.
I only meant for tasting authentic Rayalaseema food. If Kurnool & Kadapa come into travelkhana map,, I would suggest both of them too... GTL, RU are not good in terms of authenticity.

one has a chance to taste food at RAZAMPETA - RJP... that's the best place to have lunch among any other places in Rayalaseema zone, over & above ATP, KRNT & HX... RJP is very famous in Rayalaseema for tasty, spicy Lunch (full meal). If I were to drive from HYD to TPTY, I usually don't bypass RJP. I drive in, have lunch and proceed.
As of now you cannot buy a full meal at station. But you can have Idly at RJP for breakfast... Best idlies in the GTL-RU section...I would say the best Idlies you can get in any railway station in AP (Platform local vending only, Doesn't mean comeusiums or any other restaurant food that's sold on the PFs like BZA).
