As Brahmotsavas of Lord Venkateswara are nearing, the Tirumala Tirupati Devastanams (TTD) is gearing up to make arrangements for tens of thousands of pilgrims.

TTD executive officer L.V. Subrahmanyam told the media that ordinary visitors will be given preference during the Brahmotsavas and VIP darshans and breaks in queues will not be allowed during the period. All “arjitha sevas” have been postponed and only Suprabhata sevas will be allowed during the utsavas, he informed the media.

More than 500,000 laddoos will be kept ready and additional counters will be opened for the sale of laddoos to the pilgrims.

On the day of Garudosvam, more than 500,000 visitors are expected and the state-owned APSRTC will arrange almost 2/3 buses to enter Tirumala and one free service bus every 6 minutes, he said.

A thick security blanket has been put in place at Tirumala near here with the ‘Navaratri Brahmotsavam’ festival at the Lord Venkateswara shrine set to commence tomorrow. Temple sources said the festival would begin with the hoisting of the traditional Garuda flag atop the ancient golden Dwajasthambham (flag mast) in front of the sanctum sanctorum of the hill temple by high priests tomorrow evening. Surveillance cameras have been placed at several places, the sources said. A large number of huge cut-outs made of electric bulbs depicting Hindu mythological forms of several gods and goddesses have been erected on the hills. As part of decorations for festivals this year, a huge Sri Ananatha Padmanabha Swamy idol made of plaster of paris was also placed in the Narayanagiri gardens behind the temple for the benefit of devotees. The main event of the nine-day festival- Garudaseva Procession of the Lord- would take place on October 3 while the chariot procession would be on October 6, sources said. Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Kirankumar Reddy is likely to offer a set of new silk clothes to the temple deity on behalf of the state government tomorrow night,sources said. He would also declare open the twin reservoirs �Pasupudhara Dam and Kumaradhara Dam-constructed 12 KM from the main temple at an estimated cost of Rs.100 crore by Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam, which manages the shrine, to augment water supply in tune with the steadily increasing pilgrim flow. Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar is likely to visit the temple during the festival,TTD Board Chairman K Bapi Raju told reporters today.
