Tirumala: As the auspicious event “Vaikunta Dwara Darshan” is inching closer, the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) has made elaborate arrangements for hassle-free darshan of Lord Venkateswara Swamy and prasadam distribution system from January 2 to 11.
According to media reports, in a joint press statement, TTD Chairman YY Subha Reddy and Executive Officer Anil Kumar Singhal said that the TTDF will issue 45,000 slotted Sarva Darshan tickets per day from January 2 to 11 for the “Vaikunta Dwara Darshan” and the issuing of tickets will begin at 2 PM on January 1. For this, nine centres and a total of 92 counters have been arranged.
Meanwhile, TTD has made clear that for Vaikunta Ekadasi and Vaikunta Dwadasi on January 2 and 3 respectively, advanced bookings of accommodation from December 29 to January 3 will be closed, in view of new year’s day.
The VIPs will also be allotted only two rooms due to limited accommodations at the hilltop.
