    Tirumala temple to reopen on 8th June with much curbs

    Having closed for two months and more and upon central government giving green signal to open the religious places with some rules, the TTD has made elaborate arrangements to follow the rules of social distancing, safety of pilgrims and no crowding while having darshan of the lord. But the devotees who missing the lord Venkateshwara for the past two months are eager to visit in lakhs and it would be yeomen task to organize the orderly darshan. Right from transport to coming out of the temple so many new rules have been imposed.

    Tirumala Tirupati is the most busiest temple in India as lakhs of people visit every day. On weekends and festival days this number climbs up . Especially after two months of gap many many hard devotees of Venkateswara most eagerly waiting to visit this temple. So there will be lot of rush and it will be an herculean task for the staff of Tirumala Tirupati to maintain sanitization conditions and physical distance between the devotees. Recently as the TTD authorities sold world famous Tirumala Laddu prasadam in the TTD offices of various districts of AP and Hyderabad, lakhs of Laddu s were sold within few hours. Devotees they have to take care by themselves in sanitization and maintaining physical distance otherwise they get themselves into trouble.

    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.

    Not only Tirumala Temple but also all the places of worship in the country will open for pilgrims from 8th June 2020 as per the GO released by the central government. But what I feel is one should not be in a hurry and try to go on 8th or 9th itself. Many devotees are eagerly waiting to go and have the Darshan of Lord Venkateswara. But one should not forget the problem of social distance to be maintained. Everybody wants Darshan on the first day itself who can manage that. So we should think and take sufficient time so that the organisers will be able to see that all the arrangements are made for a safe darshan to all the people.
    TTD is going to announce many procedures to be followed for the darshan and the devotees should follow that without fail so that there will not be any problem. Similarly, people who are having the symptoms of the virus should not go there so that the people who are visiting the place will not be at risk.
