Tirumala Temple

Tirupati: The world’s richest Hindu temple, the Lord Venkateswara shrine atop Tirumala, received a record income of Rs 120.29 crores in offering from devotees for the Srivari Hundi in March this year.

Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam (TTD) Executive Officer Dharma Reddy told ANI that 20.57 lakh devotees visited Srivaru in the month of March.

Reddy said while devotee made offerings to the tune of Rs 120.29 crores through hundi, another Rs 2 lakhs worth of laddus were sold to the devotees. He further said that the rush of devotees on Tirumala Hill will be heavy till July 15.

“Break and Srivani Trust Darshans have been shortened to give priority to common devotees,” he added.

According to him, Nijapada darshan could not be restored in the Srivari temple on Friday due to lack of time.

“Steps will be taken to set up an eye bank in Aravind Eye Temple. To increase the quality of Annadanam, rice will be collected through millers instead of through tenders,” he added.
