Tirumala witnesses heavy rush as summer vacation ends

There has been a marked increase of pilgrims on Saturday in Tirumala hills. With the summer holidays this year coming to an end, the abode of Lord Venkateswara witnessed heavy rush of pilgrims. Devotees had a tough time spending long hours in the darshan lines with the waiting time stretching more than 20 hours. The temple authorities made special arrangements to tackle the heavy rush.
