Reports further stated that the temple premise will also have a Vedic school and a hospital. It is likely to be built in a span of two years.

Besides the temple, the 100-acre complex will also house a Vedic school and a hospital.
“Two sites were identified as suitable for constructing the temple,” the report said attributing the comment to Parliamentarian V Vijaya Sai Reddy, who led the delegation of the TTD Board. The two sites are Dhummi and Majin in J&K’s Jammu district.
The delegation reportedly held discussion with officials of the J&K administration following instructions from Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy.
“We also met the Chief Secretary of Jammu & Kashmir and explained the details of our project. It has been a long-pending demand of pilgrims from many North Indian States visiting Tirumala that a replica of the temple be constructed in Jammu,” an official of the TTD Board was quoted
