Tirumala Laddu is one of the most beloved Prasadam for the devotees who worship Lord Sri Venkateswara/Balaji. Although the laddu as prasadam began in 1715, it became the most significant prasadam and the most loved for the pligrims. The laddu is given as prasadam to devotees after having darshan in the temple. The laddu prasadam is prepared inside the temple kitchen called “Potu” by the TTD.
