Very good administration and arrangement through out the way, but very bad at the end. All people of free , 50 Rs and 300Rs and Senior... More

Likes: Security Process, Information Desks. Dislikes: For the people not having hotel room in temple area need to keep their chappals in the car and have to walk long ways without that after leaving temple. (Also have to go bare foot in restrooms). They have kept boards for traditional outfit everywhere but no one verifies the same. 300 rs for... More

Great Experience at Tirumala. I visit once in a year. All facilities like Seva, Dharshan and Rooms are now available for pre-booking online(https://www.ttdsevaonline.com/). At time due to heavy rush its hard to book on arrival due to heavy rush. Lockers, toilet facilities are available at every corner of Tirumala. Best way to reach tirumala in by walk from Alipiri. Free... More

We travelled from Bangalore. Tirupathi-Tirumala approximately 330 kilometers by rail or road. APSRTC has several buses from city bus stand. This journey is all about timing and darshan. The lord resides at Tirumala and his wife at Tirupathi. The Devasthanam has rooms which can be prebooked or on arrival at CRO office. Rooms can range from free to 1500 per... More

Just returned from Balaji. Great experience. Really blessing of Lord Vishnu, I completed this. Laddu so tasty. Unforgettable experience. Some one can go to darshan, if wait time is long then take out pass, and visit city or other temples, buses free of cost. At darshan time go back to waiting hall.

This is the temple of Lord Vishnu which is very ancient & most powerful Lord. The temple is very very clean & the management is excellent. Daily on an average there are more than 50,000 pilgrims visiting this temple. The queue complex is well designed & flow of pilgrims is very smooth. The Laddu counter building is on the right...
