  1. Hi Sir,

    I am planning to have kalyanam on July 18
    Can I start climbing the steps from Sri vari mettu at 5 pm July 17. What would be my divya darshan time
    Also pls let me know where and how much time will it take for hair offering and ear stiching

    • Dear Srikanth,

      It is not advisable to climb hills from Srivari Mettu at 5 pm as you will not have much facilities during evening times. As you are planning to climb Hills , it is good to take Alipiri Mettu path. If you start climbing Hills 5 pm , it will take 4 hours – 4:30 hours as you are planning with elders, which means 9:30 pm , you will reach Tirumala. While Climbing Hills, Divya Darshan Token will be issued. I would suggest not to depend on Divya Darshan as it is Saturday, crowd will be high and Darshan Waiting Time may go up to 18 hours. So please book Rs.300 tickets online or any seva tickets at

      Please look for accommodation as well, It doesn’t matter if it is Tirumala or Tirupati. As it takes 28 mins to Tirumala, you are still good to stay in Tiruapti.

      Hair Offering will take 30-45 mins at Kalayanakatta, and bathing rooms do available there itself.

      Ear Stitching is will take another 10 mins max.

      Please let me know if further clarification required.


  2. Sir,

    Please let me know if I can take my 3 yr kid and my parents along with me for kalyanam. Will they also be allowed to join the special darshan queue.

    • Dear Srikanth,

      Yes, 3 year kid is allowed for Kalyanam, but not parents. For Kalyanam, only 2 persons are allowed per ticket. If your parents are interested to join then you need to take ticket for them as well.

      Please let me know if further clarification required.


    • Is ttd’s ccommodation available at tircahanur. If so how do i book.

      • No madam, it is not available in Tiruchanur. Please plan to stay in Tirupati, which will not take more than 15 minutes to reach Tiruchanur.

    • Hai andi ,garuda prasadam online lo book chesukovacha vere country lo unnavallu

  3. Dear kamal sir,

    Thank you very much for the information.

    My parents will go by bus to thirumala. It’s only me and my wife who will climb the steps from Sri vari mettu. Is climbing from Sri vari mettu allowed after 5 pm.(what is the last reporting or entry time from Sri vari mettu)

    Both my parents are handicapped and aged 62 & 65. They also have a companion to take care of them. What is the best way for arranging their darshanam.

    • Dear Srikanth,

      As you are planning to climb hills via Srivari mettu it is good to start bit early as Srivari Mettu Path will be closed by 6 pm.

      Srivari Mettu timings 6 am- 6 pm

      If you start by 3pm then it is good idea.

      Best way is by booking seva tickets for them like Kalyanotsavam. Unjal seva so that crowd will be normal when compared to normal Que. That too Kalyanotsavam will be performed inside temple after seva it would be 20 mins for Darshan.

      And that too you will be there to accompany them.

      If it is normal rs300 or divya darshan We can’t control as everyone Will be pushing.

      Please plan this way for easy access to darshan.

      Please let me know if further information required.


  4. HI, I am going to Tirupati in June for the first time and staying in Andhra Spice Residency. Please let me know the route map to Cottage number 74 and the travel options available.

    • Dear Rathish,

      As you are residing at Andhra Spice Residency, bus station is nearby. Tirumala to Tirumala bus runs every 10 minutes. And journey to Tirumala takes 40-50 mins from Tirupati Bus station. Private jeeps do run services to Tirumala but they will drive fast so better is to go with Bus services.

  5. We are planning to take Srivari mettu and wondering if free luggage transportation is available here OR should we drop the luggage at Alipiri toll gate?

      As Srivari Mettu is available only from 6 am. Darshan time usually runs at 9 – 10 hours waiting time, which means you can complete Darshan by 3:30 pm (approx).

      Could you look for special entry darshan tickets if available at ?

        Sir is there any free accommodation (rooms or cottages) for footpath pilgrims. If yes where to find it. Or any other staying facilities.

        • Dear Surendra Babu,

          As you are reaching Tirupati at Early hours, Srivari mettu is available only from 6 am. If you want to start early then Alipiri Mettu is the only path available. Yes, you can complete Darshan on 21st itself. Darshan time will run at 10 -11 hours gap.

  10. nice to see that there is a website that helps the piligrims! That too I see that the questions are promptly answered.

    • Dear Suresh,

      As you are reaching at 1 pm , it would good idea to take SriVari Mettu path so that you reach Tirumala early. Currently, Darshan time for Divya Darshan Tokens is running at 4 hours gap. So it may go high to 6 hours tomorrow.

      Which means even if you start climbing at 2 pm, Darshan time will be 10 pm, but Sarva Darshan close by 7 pm which means you can only have darshan next day morning.

      You need to look for accommodation in Tirumala, after reaching tirumala please go to C.R.O Office for accommodation. As it Friday, it will take time to get accommodation where rooms are allotted on First-Cum-First Serve basis.

      When comes to Angapradakshinam, tickets will be issued at C.R.O Office at 2 pm for which queue line starts at 11 am so you can join and get angapradakshinam tickets for the same day.

      If you are planning via Alipri Mettu is still fine, it will take 1 hour 30 mins more.

      Accommodation will definitely takes time, meanwhile to fresh please use free dormitory rooms beside C.R.O Office Tirumala.

      Please let me know if further information required.

      Only these two Brahmotsavam activities planned in the months of Sep and Oct, after that there is no major events. After Brahmotsavam, plan your trip either on Tuesday or Wednesday so that crowd will be minimal.

    Let me know if anything else is required.


    • Dear Gaurav,

      How many are planning to perform Pooja, if it is only one then you can purchase Rs.1500 ticket so that others can sit next to you during Pooja.
      Pooja can be performed single or with couple. Even you perform pooja with Jeans and T-shirt, there is no restriction with dress code.

      Yes, it is absolutely fine in not going to Tirupati. You shouldn’t visit any other Temple after this pooja. Crowd will always be high, higher the ticket cost lower the crowd.

  133. Dear Sir,
    I am planning for Lord Balaji Darshanam on Nov. 17th. I already have e-Special Entry Darshan booking for 4 p.m.
    I am planning to start my walk from Alipiri Mettu at 9:30 a.m. and be up in Tirumala by 1:30 p.m.

    I have 2 questions:

    1. After reaching the top, where are the recommended places for head tonsure and bath (snana), where I can complete both quickly and in the minimum amount of time?

    2. Although I have been told that most devotees and pilgrims do the walk from Alipiri Mettu barefoot, but some friends told me that they had done it wearing rubber soled shoes made of fabric (like keds, NOT leather). Is that allowed?

    Please advise. Thank you.

    Amrit Raj Ghosh.

    • Dear Sir,

      1. Yes, after reaching Tirumala, please go to Rambageecha Guest House, where it is a paid service for tonsure. It takes 20 mins to complete this activity
      2. No restriction on the foot wear, it is only advise, why because Lord Balaji took Srivari Mettu Path after marriage to reach Tirumala.
      It is holy place, so it is suggested not to wear. If it is unavoidable then you can wear foot wear.

    • Dear Srividya,

      1) For jan month, seva tickets will be released online on 4th dec at 11 am. Instead of quick darshan, I would suggest look for best darshan.
      if you get a chance, try for Suprabhatham seva, Thomala seva, archana, astadala pada padmaradhanamu, kalyanotsavam. Please follow this order while booking seva tickets online.
      2) Difference with Rs.300 and Divya Drashan is, In Rs.300 you can pre-plan your journey time, whereas Divya Darshan, we will know darshan time only at the counter.

    First of all thanks for all info you provided in you site, very use full and help full. We are planning to visit tirumala on feb 19, with a group of 7 adults and 2 children, Since its on friday we want to book for nijapadadarshnam and kalyanam on the same day. what are the chances to book through online for both the sevas.

    Do we need to upload all of group members photographs or any one will do. Since we stay in singapore i can book online as and when it opens. what other things i needs to look out while booking online.

    Incase if i fail for online booking, what are the other chances of getting my tickets for those two sevas.

    Since you had a lot of information, please suggets any other sevas possible to book on the same day.

    Thanks, and god bless you !!

    • Dear Anu,

      Kalyanotsavam tickets can be booked easily. Both sevas booking can be managed easily, if two persons handles two requests separately.
      Primary person photo is enough, no need to upload group photo

      For 7 adults, tickets should be booked from 4 login IDs.
      Children above 3 years and below 12 years don’t need seva tickets, they can join with their parents for the seva

      One more restriction, is there while booking, if you book any seva then you are not allowed to book any other seva ticket using the same id. For Kalyanotsavam you need to have separate id and Nijapada darshanam separate id.

      Sometimes you will get the error as Booking limit exceeds, in this case try connecting using your dataplan to book seva ticket.

      Please keep these things ready before starting with online booking

      1) Photo size should be less than 20 kb
      2) Photo should be in 150 x 150 dimensions
      3) Save Id details, age, name in a notepad

      Kalyanotsavam can be easily booked which will not be a problem at all. Instead of Nijapada Darshanam tickets, try for Suprabhatha seva tickets for the same day.

      Please let me know if you need more details.

  159. Please let me know the monthly quota release date

    2. hiring a cab to travel to Tirupati/tirumula (4 adults and 2 kids)

    5. is it possible to go back to chennai same day..or shall we book the accomodation in tirupati or tirumula?

    • Dear Sanju,

      Please do this way.

      1) I believe there is direct flights available from Delhi to Tirupati, that will save 4 hours journey time from chennai
      From chennai it takes 3 hours 45 mins to reach tirupati and another 30 mins to reach Tirumala. Which means by 3:15 pm you will be in Tirumala
      2) For hair offering , please go to Rambageecha Guest House , it is paid tonsuring which takes another 20 – 25 mins followed by bath over there (30 mins). Estimated 5 pm.
      3) Please book darshan slot for 7 pm by 8:30 pm , you will complete the darshan so that you can start to chennai
      4) No need to book accommodation in Tirumala for this.

  350. Sir,
    I am unable to book accommodation on line as ttdsevaonline site as the menu for e accommodation is not opening (Other menus are alright) and giving error as below using any of the browsers Mozila or Chrome etc.
    I have also mailed to [email protected]
    “Your connection is not secure.
    The owner of has configured their website improperly. To protect your information being stolen ,firefox has not connected to this website”.

    • Dear Sir,
      Please follow this steps.
      Open Gooogle chrome browser -> Open website -> on getting privacy error -> Click on advanced -> Then click on “Proceed anyway”


      • Yes Sir,
        As suggested by you I am able to open the e accommodation menu. Still I feel it is a bug which has to be addressed by the technical people.
        Why I say so is when all other menus are opening except Kalyana vedhika and e-accommodation which one has to force open either from IE or Mozial or Chrome or any of the browsers as suggested by you. When I force open it is going to ttd seva online old web site and again it is asking for the user id and password and the the above two menus are only available in the old web site. The menus should open as it is from the new web site.
        I mailed to helpdesk and called 1800425333333 and they are telling only how we have to force open as I told you above and are unable to understand the technical issue why it sholud go to old web site.
        I would only kindly request you to take up at your level so that thousands of devotees will have smooth surfing
        thanking you sir

  351. Sir,
    Thanks for your reply for guiding me how to open e-accommodation and kalyana vedika menu.
    I am unable to open from any of the browsers these two menus and all other menus are opening
    If I force open the menu as suggested by you it takes me to old ttd seva online web site, there again it is asking for the user id and password to enter the old web site.
    In the old web site only two menus are available e-accommodation and kalyana vedika and I am able to navigate.
    Still I feel it may be a technical flaw. I have already taken up with the [email protected]. I am doubtful if the will look into this issue. Therefore I am troubling you

    Need some guidance here. My mom fell sick & is now recovering because of Vaikuntavasa, the almighty.

This is a sudden plan & I am visting Tirumala on 24th (Sat). I am planning to walk from Alipiri early in the morning, reach Tirumala, get my head tonsured, take bath, deposit my mobile/ back pack and straight get in to the queue.

    I know, a single pilgrim cant get rooms in Tirumala. Given this background can you help me with the following:
    – Where can i take bath and refresh (not so crowded area & where i can get hot water as i have wheezing)
    – Place to deposit the mobile
    – Approx time it might take for the dharshan

    Many Regards – SK
