TTD cuts ‘ Anga Pradakshinam' number to 500

Principal Correspondent

Tirumala: The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams management on Saturday slapped restrictions on the number of devotees being allowed to perform ‘ Anga Pradakshinam' in the Venkateswara temple here. The number has been brought down from 750 to 500.

The decision comes in the wake of complaints from devotees that temple staff were not allowing them to perform full ‘ pradakshinam' around the ‘prakaras'

The temple staff argued that they were rather forced to act under pressure to facilitate the smooth conduct of pre-dawn rituals like Thomala and Archana, which followed ‘ Anga Pradakshinam.'
