It is a must-visit destination for every Hindu pilgrim. The crowds are the only fear-factor. Time your visit to avoid the crowds, for example, skip weekends. Some local guidance is very essential to identify best methods for darshan. Senior citizens get direct entry everyday in two slots - once in the forenoon, and once in the evening.

Tirupati Balaji is the richest temple in the country. People throng there every day to take a glimpse of Lord Balaji. You feel very peaceful after the darshan.
