TIRUPATI, MAY 26, 2023: TTD Trust Board Chairman YV Subba Reddy has invited Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy to participate in the Maha Samprokshanam fete of Sri Vari temple in Jammu on June 8.

The TTD Board Chief along with the New Delhi Local Advisory Committee Chairperson Prasanthi Reddy formally met the CM in his camp office at Tadepalli on Thursday.

They have offered him the invitation to Maha Samprokshanam festivities from June 3 to 8. The Chairman explained to him that on the last day after Maha Samprokshanam, the devotees will be allowed for darshan Sri Venkateswara Swamy. The CM lauded the TTD for taking up Hindu Dharma Prachara activities in a big way across the country.

The construction work of the Tirupati Balaji temple, located amidst the picturesque Shivalik forests in Majeen near Jammu, is in its final phase and the temple is scheduled to open its doors for devotees on June 8.

The temple, built on 62-acre land at an estimated cost of Rs 30 crore, is set to become one of the largest temples in the Jammu region and is expected to boost religious and pilgrimage tourism in the Union territory.

The Jammu temple will be the sixth Balaji Temple constructed outside of Andhra Pradesh, with the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) having previously built temples in Hyderabad, Chennai, Kanyakumari, Delhi, and Bhubaneswar.

”We have almost completed the construction of the temple and it will be inaugurated on June 8 and will be thrown open for the devotees free of cost. The rituals will start from June 3,” TTD Chairman Y V Subba Reddy said.

The TTD has built the Tirupati Balaji Temple at a holy place. It falls on the route between Jammu and Katra, where Mata Vaishno Devi temple is located. The temple’s construction is part of a broader initiative by the TTD to establish multiple Balaji temples across the country. The project in Jammu, located amidst the picturesque Shivalik forests in Majeen, has made remarkable progress and is nearing completion in less than two years, a commendable achievement.

The TTD is building Balaji Temples all over the country. So, those who are unable to visit the Tirupati Balaji Temple in Andhra Pradesh can visit these temples in their cities, he said.  The Jammu and Kashmir government allocated land in 2021 and the TTD started the construction work the same year. The aim is to inaugurate the Jammu temple ahead of the annual Amarnath Yatra, which starts on July 1.
