Describing Tirumala as the Spiritual Capital of Hindus, TTD Additional EO Sri AV Dharma Reddy said, the management has taken up more development works including the renovation of Rest Houses, Gardens, Parakamani Hall, Potu, Alipiri Footpath etc. Which will complete by this year and come to the pilgrim fore soon.
Addressing during the 72nd Republic Day Celebrations after hoisting the National Flag on Tuesday, the Additional EO remembering the sacrifices of great national leaders towards the development of India, said TTD is also committed to offer best services to the multitude of pilgrims visiting Tirumala.
He said, the historical decision of opening Vaikuntha Dwaram at Tirumala temple for the first time was taken after going through many spiritual texts, getting the consent of Peethadhipathis by a series of negotiations for over an year. He said, in Vaikuntha-the residing place of Sri Maha Vishnu, 12 hours in a day is equal to six months of Uttarayana Punya Kala on Earth and remaining 12 hours to six months of Dakshinayana Punya Kala for humans.
