Very Good nice clean place but lot of rush. We got very less time at main temple. No use to go for extra laddu as they issue slip for only 2 laddu per person and again there is big ques at laddu distribution center, AC cdottage at Tirumala are hopeless.

From the very beginning , it is the most systematic temple . The road to the temple is the safest because it is one way and there is a time , for this drivers drive steadily .

This was my second visit and the first time that I took the stairs to Tirumala. The hill is an eco system of its own right. The temple is to be seen in its full glory. Thousands of pilgrims visit it everyday so you need to plan it well. We did the early morning break darshan where we had to... More

I would like to share that if one can afford then tirumala special darshan tickets @ Rs.300/- per head can be booked in advance through online & darshan can be done in normal time of one hour & more .We were lucky to have darashan within one hour . Arrangements for drinking water & cooling arrangements are nice.
