    • With 20 million visitors per year, it is regarded as the most visited shrine in the world. Now to cope with the huge pilgrim rush, the Tirumala temple authorities of Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh, will set up a new shrine at Kurukshetra in Haryana. This will be the first full-fledged temple of Lord Venkateshwara outside Andhta by the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD).


      A meeting took place between Adikeshavulu Naidu, TTD chairman, and Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda in Delhi on Thursday. The Haryana government has agreed to give five acres of land free of cost to TTD at Kurukshetra.
