The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) is planning to provide the devotes of darshan of Lord Venkateswara Swamy within one hour being let out of the cubicles of the Vaikuntam queue complex.
TTD Executive Officer D.Sambasiva Rao after a meeting with the officials on Tuesday said the management had experimented with the system on a trial and error basis before arriving at a conclusion. The temple staff found that about 4,500 pilgrims could be provided darshan of the deity in one hour. ‘Now that we have a clear idea about the movement of pilgrims in the darshan lines, the management has strictly decided to ensure that every devotee comes out of the main temple complex with the comfortable darshan of the deity in one hour after being let out of the queue compartments.
The TTD has simplified the procedures for the cottage donors. Henceforth no donor slips will be sent to the cottage donors. Donors can avail themselves of all the privileges online. Donors visiting the town in person can book their accommodation in advance. In case, if they wish to recommend the cottage to others they should comply with the formalities online at least four days in advance.
