Tirumala Darshan Timings for Pedestrians
Before discussing the timings, let us know the details of Divya Darshan. The devotees who prefer to reach the temple by climbing the steps of Tirupati hills are called Kalinadaka Bhakthulu.
Many people choose to reach Tirumala through this steps way by praying the god to fulfill their desire and some will reach if their desire was fulfilled.
And a few people will lite the camphor, putting a mixture of KumKum and turmeric on each step if their desire was fulfilled.
Divya Darshan Tickets for pedestrians will allow you to have free food, accommodation at PAC and darshan.
Ways to reach Tirumala by walk:
They are 2 different steps of ways to reach Tirumala. One is Alipiri and the other is Srivari Steps. These 2 ways are different in many factors. So, check the details in depth to reach Tirumala.
Reaching Tirumala through Alipiri Steps Way:
In Alipiri Steps way, we need to climb 3550 steps of Tirupati hills.
Through this way, Tirupati to Tirumala distance is about 9 km and take nearly 6 – 7 hours to climb.
There are good facilities for food, toilets, and even for medical check also.
It is 5 km away from the Tirupati Bus Stand where free buses will run to reach Alipiri Steps way. Or else we can hire a vehicle to reach alipiri mettu.
Tirupati Steps way allows devotees all through the day i.e 24/7.
As said earlier the tokens/tickets will issue in the middle of the climbing steps. Gali Gopuram 2 is the spot where you will be issued by a ticket and reporting time within it.
Reaching Tirumala through Srivari Steps Way:
It has 2350 steps to reach Tirumala by climbing.
Srivari mettu to Tirumala distance by walk is about 2 km and takes 3-4 hours to reach Tirumala.
We can reach Srivari Mettu by bus which is 17 km away from Tirupati bus stand.
But this will allow devotes from morning 6 AM to an evening at 6 PM.
And the spot of ticket issuing for Divya darshan is at 100th step of Srivari steps from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
Tirupati steps also you can find good and toilet facilities along with good security.
Important points to know about Divya Darshan:
After receiving the ticket/token you will be allotted for darshan only if it was checked at the checkpoint which is present at finishing point within the steps ways. Otherwise, your ticket is invalid for Darshan.
If in the case of the heavy crowd in Tirumala, the tickets of Divya darshan may not be available for you. And also this will allow devotees to have 7-8 hours darshan.
So, don’t get worried if you cannot find any diya darshan tickets issuing centers during your walk to Tirumala.
Free Luggage deposition centers at Tirupathi:
It will be very difficult to carry luggage while walking to Tirumala through steps. So, TTD provided free luggage deposition center at both Srivari and Alipiri Steps.
Luggage deposition centers are located at the entrance of Srivari and Alipiri metlu.
You need to remove if there are any electronics like a laptop, phones, and delicate items in your luggage as there is a chance to damage. Better to carry along with you.
After reaching Tirumala you can collect your luggage at luggage collection centers. GNC luggage collection center which is present right at the entrance of the Tirumala is the center to collect your luggage.
