The Tirumala temple in Chennai is modelled after the more famous and original Tirupati temple in Andhra Pradesh. A complete replica of the original, this temple is visited by thousands who are unable to travel up to Tirupati or stand in the serpentine queues there.
The temple opens for the daily rituals early in the morning at 3.00 am with the 'Suprabhatam', which means awakening the Lord and ends at night with the 'Ekanta Seva' (putting the Lord to sleep) at 8.00 pm. The temple remains closed for 2 hours in the afternoon.
Like the original Tirupati temple, here also the tonsuring of head is considered as an important offering. The temple will be crowded on Saturdays and on other special days.
Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam is located close to Chennai railway station and as well as the main market at Pondy Bazar. Local transport like rickshaw and bus form the easiest means of reaching the temple.
It is preferable to visit the temple during the months of November to March as summers here are hot & humid and hence avoidable.

TTD Devaswam temple is like same Lord Balaji in Tirupati. It is located in T. Nagar and easy to locate and reach. The service and information rendered by the temple staff is more informative about Tirupati Balaji.More » « Less
