*In South India, it is customary for devotees to make promises to the “Hill God” that they would visit by barefoot from the base to the top of the hill, if their wish is fulfilled. So, "footers" here denotes the same; nowadays most temples in hilltops have proper cement stairs to climb up, and most people climb during the night to see the “Hill God” in the early morning.
