In a move to improve the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) online booking, the independent trust for the first time in history has released the Sarva Darshan tokens (free darshan) through online mode on its official website: tirupatibalaji.ap.gov.in at 9 AM on 25th September 2021.
In an unexpected development, about 2.4 lakh tickets were booked in less than two hours after the trust opened the online booking portal. With numerous complaints about the website freezing every time during ticket bookings, TTD has recently roped in Reliance Jio which seems to work out.
While TTD has put up 8,000 tour tickets online per day, 300 special entry tickets have also been booked out. However, the TTD stipulated that the devotees who are visiting the holy temple should carry the certificate that he/she got two doses of the vaccine or an RTP-CR negative report taken 72 hours ahead of Dharshan.
