This is my annual visit to this temple. One need to exercise patience visiting this temple as the que is long. It took us 4 hours although prior arrangement was made with payment of INR300 per person for VIP entrance. Spiritually uplifting after the visit. Temple is clean with many places to rest complete with water and toilet facilities.

It is one of the richest temples globally in terms of wealth and donations received. About one lakh pilgrims visit this temple on a daily basis, and number multiplies manifold during festivals and special occasions. We try to come here once every year, very very peaceful. What hasnt changed over the years is the long queue and mismanagement of the... More

We have decided to stay at Tirumala which was a wrong decision. The room was provided after waiting in the accommodation queue for 3 hours. Cost the room was Rs.500. But the room was dirty. Even the bathroom were not very clean. I would suggest to spend little more and stay at Titupati there are many hotels and readily available.... More

Travelled to this sacred place and probably the most visited temple in the world with family. Carrying my little daughter among not so sensible people around me...all trying to get ahead of others in an organised chaos of the highest order. After fighting with the crowd in Special Entry Lane with relatatively less waiting period, managed to get the view... More

Immensely popular temple which attracts devotees and devotee-business partners from all over the country, it is maintained so well. The crowd management is top class till the last stage. As you enter sanctum area, there is no control and people are allowed to jostle. The entry and exit are the same which adds to the confusion. You are not allowed... More

If you are planning to visit the Tirumala temple you will definitely need 7-8 hours to get a darshan of Balaji so before going to the temple I suggest you to please visit the Tirumala website and book VIP pass ticket for the temple because it only requires an hour for us to reach inside the temple. we can select...
