    • Dear Arumugam
      No Thumburu Theertham visit for 2021 is yet planned and may not be due to COVID 19 issue. So better plan for next year.

  • Dear TTD Team,

    Current situation TTD allowed only if we have token into Tirumala, to go to Thumburu threetham do we required any token to be shown at Tirupati checking point.

    Thanks & regards,
    Eswar Naidu

    • Dear Eshwar Naidu
      Showing the Dharshan Token is enough to go to dharshan.
      Thumburu Theertham 2021 visit is not yet planned by TTD Board, and it is going to be closed this year due to Covid 19.
      So better plan for next year.
      Om Namo Venkateshwaraya Namah
