TTD CANCELS VIP BREAK FROM OCT 2-4
TIRUMALA, OCT.1: In view of heavy pilgrim rush at Tirumala, TTD has cancelled VIP break darshan from October 2 to 4 except for protocol VIPs.
As the quarterly holidays have already commenced for state board in Tamilnadu, Tirumala has been witnessing heavy turnout of pilgrims since last Saturday. As the holidays are coupled with Puraittassi month or Tirumala Sanivaralu which is considered to be more auspicious for Tamils, there is an enormous increase in pilgrim influx especially from Tamilnadu.
As Friday happens to be a national holiday in the wake of Gandhi Jayanthi, TTD is anticipating more turnout of pilgrim rush. At this juncture, the temple management has cancelled VIP break darshan on Friday, Saturday andSunday to facilitate common pilgrims in order to have a speedy darshan avoiding serpentine queue lines and waiting time.
