If you have planned to visit inside the temple, please visit online pager and make advance reservation. Advisable to get 500 tickets then you will get the chance to go around in an hour and see Thirupathi perumal nearby, do pooja. Make Reservation well in advance.

No words describe for this place. It's a magnificent temple in the 7hills. Doesn't matter how much time you wait, the moment when u get darshana the magic power will hit on you. Best place in the planet we can say.

I have always felt a visit to Tirumala leads to inner peace. The last visit to Tirumala was about 4 years ago, we had booked the seva ticket at the Vijaya Bank counter at Tirumala. But this time the seva tickets and the sheegra darshan(300 Rupees) ticket can be booked online. More details can be found at https://www.ttdsevaonline.com/ . If... More

A word of advice for less strong travellers like me, who get sick in waiting in sun in a longest queue, to book a 300 rs special darshan pass from the tirumala trust website prior to your journey to Tirumala. There are many bus and taxi services available from Bangalore to tirupati , yet we booked train tickets for the... More

I am writing this review for those who wants to go by car to Tirupathi from Bangalore, that they should be very careful. Road from Bangalore to Mulabagal(after Kolar) is good. But the strech between Mulabagal and Chittor is extemely danger. It is single road and it is not at all advisable to drive in rainy conditions. Car will not... More

Tirupati is one of the richest pilgrimage cities in the world but that is not the reason to visit this place. I have never seen so many people visiting a temple. It is always very crowded but despite that the temple is well maintained in terms of queue system and neatness. There are a lot of Puja sevas.I have attended... More

This temple is situated at the top of the Tirumala hill and the hill road is well maintained, pleasurable to drive. There are two roads from Tirupathi to Tirumala, one for going up the hill while the other is for going down the hill. The temple and surrounding areas are well maintained, clean and tidy. Devotees are offered laddu a... More
