Do I really need to add anything about this place?! It is a pilgrimage site of international recognition and supposedly the richest temple of India. Well, with the amount of pilgrims flocking this temple every day, this isn't a big surprise!

Went on a Thursday evening to the temple, we went there thinking we would have to spend a lot of time in line, fortunately we finished with the prayer and darshan within 2 hours time. Believe weekends are extremely crowded, so suggest to all to visit during the week.

Visited Tirumala Temple on 23rd September 2016. No need to describe about the Greatness of the God. Everything is excellently managed by the Trust. Excellent Infrastructure. Darshan was very smooth. Surroundings very clean. Good transport system, apart from free bus service for movement.Only request to Trust to control the menace of pickpockets.

When you go for darshan, just see the god and listen the mantra OM NAMO VENKATESHAAYA inside the temple.

I can not review anything except surrender to The Lord Sri Venkateswara famously called as Sri Balaji. The atmosphere & ambience make anyone forget everything and worshipping lord . Prasadam specially LADDU are so special , nothing can replace that. Forget yourself and see Sri Balaji.
