The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) has decided to put an end to the long hour ques for the devotees to have the darshan of Lord Venkateswara Swamy by introducing time slot system.
Currently, the time slot system is available for Rs.300 ticket holders and trekking devotees. This will be introduced from next month on experimental basis. For this purpose, the TTD has established 20 special counters. With this, devotees can have the darshan within two hours.
It may be recalled that Rs.300 ticket holders are having the darshan from 9am to 9pm with a maximum of 2,500 devotees per hour and devotees without much strain are able to have darshan. The treeking devotees too are able to have the darshan of Lord Venkateswara Swamy with a maximum time of two hours.
