Hyderabad, Dec 23 : President Pranab Mukherjee Monday paid homage at Sathya Sai Baba's "Mahasamadhi" at Puttaparthi in Andhra Pradesh's Anantapur district.


Accompanied by Governor E.S.L Narasimhan and Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, he visited Prasanthi Nilayam and paid floral tributes at the Mahasamadhi.

"After the floral tribute, the president offered prayers at the Mahasamadhi and then at the Mandir," said a statement from Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust.

The trustees received the president and briefed him about the activities of the trust.
