Tirumala temple holds an important place in any Hindu life and we do not mind any dis comfort. Usually it takes 3 to 4 hours for darshan. When I went, no crowds fromTamil Nadu were there, due to the CM's demise. Hence the expected crowd was only half. Had a darshan in 35 minutes time.

Though I have got the tickets for a special dharshan, all are sent via the same area & it was very disappointing. Nevertheless God Venkateswara was truly magnificent 👍
