Darshan through Rs.300/- booked online is easy and darshan of lord balaji is less cumbersome.

Highly planned and organised vehicle / crowd management. Both the temple premise and areas outside the temple are maintained very clean. If you follow the instructions and avoid festive seasons / weekeneds, you will have a smooth fast darshan

This place is good for the pilgrims only. The architectural design is not so attractive. The Temple Committe gives few seconds for darshan. This is more unfortunate because people have to stand for a long time to make darshan.

Try to book online darshan tickets (better if you go in evening), dont carry your phone and cameras - you can save around 30 to 45 minutes by doing so. Carry water bottle, some biscuits and fruit if you have kids.

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.
