My question is - Is it necessary to visit the shrine while the whole world is under virus attack. As it is, Tirupati is a temple where people get locked up in big halls and wait for hours to have a few second look at Lord Balaji. At this juncture, with the social distancing in place, a devotee will have to wait for days to reach the idol. The rush can be controlled only by advance online booking. The number of devotees per day should be limited. Say three seconds (three steps) for one individual. This will work out to 20 devotees in a minute and 1200 devotees an hour. If the temple is closed for darshan for four hours, in a day, 24000 devotees can worship the Lord, peacefully, maintaining the social distance of 3 feet.
No life without Sun
