63446 devotees visited Tirumal yesterday and the number of visiting pilgrims is on increase.
Devotees are waiting in 28 compartments of waiting complex. The estimated time for darshan is 15 hours at present for general category called Sarva Darshan, 3 hours for special darshan and 5 hours for the devotees reach on foot climbing the stairways on seven hills.
But the decision of intensifying the Samaikyandhra stir is worrying the Temple authorities and also devotees visiting from other states. Revenue employees have decided not to go on duties during the festival times of Dasara and Deepavali. That way it may affect the Brahmotsavams at Tirumala and Dasara Utsavams at Vijayawada Kanaka Durga temple.
