Devotees will be allowed for Lord Venkateswara's darshan again from August 17th Sources from TTD said, the process of Samprokshanam takes place once in every 12 years and in this regard, TTD board held a meeting and decided to stop darshan for devotees from August 11th 6 am onwards till 17th but they are not prohibited from staying in Tirumala.
The Temple Chairman said that there would be a special convention on August 11th and made it clear that this nine days did not allow devotees to climb the hill. The devotees expressed their anguish over the decision of TTD as they won’t get to visit the temple for nine days.
This meeting has been instrumental in the backdrop of a series of row disputes over the past few days. The decision of the governing council to stop Lord Venkateswara darshan for nine days was taken keeping in view of the allegations made by the former Chief Principal Ramana regarding the missing ornaments from the temple.
