Then after the climbing by steps.
Then we took some rest in room for 45 mins in the room.
Our room was near Tirumala museum.
And one hotel i would recommend in Tirumala is Woodside Restaurant
The one which is in the underground.
Only this place has Tasty food.
Every time we visit Tirumala we visit only this hotel.
Another one is not
that Good, Sandeepa(Mayura Hotel).
After a dinner in the Wood side.
It was already 9.30 pm.
Then with our Pedestrian Slip we all went to VQC-1.
Just the queue besides 300 rs Seegradarshanam queue.
It took 1.30 hrs on that day. In time 9.45pm
Got darshan at 11.15 pm.
Sat inside the temple below Vimana Venkateshwara Swamy for 45 mins.
What a fresh air inside the temple.
The note counting centre was closed for that day.
Then there was a huge rush for laddu counter.
A new complex For Laddu Distribution has been built by SBI.
You won't believe there are 30 counters, Just as in bank.
All the 30 counters had heavy rush, took 50 minutes to take laddu.
Reached the room at 1 am.
For pedestrians who make it to Tirumala by foot, they are given Laddu ticket in the queue complex for 20 Rs/ person.
This is exclusively for Pedestrians.
The next day we woke around 10 am.
Got ready, and took tickets for Seegradarshanam(Quick Darshan).
For this one has to go into the queue of this in VQC-1 & payment is made while on the queue by any one person of family.
Then you are let in a cell.
There was heavy rush for Seegradarshanam on the next day, it took 3 hours.
But this time we were let upto the inside dwaram of Lord balaji.
That was indeed a great darshan. In time 11.15 am. Out time-2.30 pm.
The same day after the Darshan, we went to 2 places.
Prabhu padam(View from Hill).
Rock Garden(Shilpa Toranam)
And Falls in there.
This place can be done easily.
To go to this place, just take left
after the Hotel Sandeepa Mayura. Hawk's Turbo could be tested here, what an effortless pull.
Yes road's were indeed narrow. Rock Garden(Shilpa Toranam)
