The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam (TTD) board has opened Lord Balaji darshan on a limited scale on Monday. However, only the TTD employees are allowed inside the temple on June 8 and 9.

On June 10, local residents will be allowed to visit the temple, while from June 11 onwards, gates of the famous hill shrine will be thrown open to all pilgrims.

Arrangements have been made to allow 500 devotees per hour and 6,000 per day, while maintaining physical distance and other norms prescribed for Covid-19 control, according to TTD. The temple premises have been decked up for the reopening of darshan with flowers all over.

The temple was closed for all since March 20 in the wake of Covid-19 pandemic, though all temple rituals were performed without any break by the priests every day during the lockdown period.
