Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams, the non-profit organization that runs the Tirumala Venkateswara Temple in Andhra Pradesh, has launched a refreshed app called “TTDevasthanams.”
TTD collaborated with Jio Platforms on the app’s development. TTD Chairman Sri YV Subba Reddy describes this as a “one-stop solution” for devotees, providing all services based on the pilgrims’ evolving needs.
The TTDevasthanams app now includes user-friendly features such as a user-friendly UI, pilgrim-friendly login using a mobile number and OTP, notifications for real-time updates, live streaming of videos and audios, and ease of availing / booking services such as special entry darshan, accommodation, Srivari Sevas, and so on, as well as hundi and donation acceptance and other services.
Furthermore, the mobile app includes push notifications for important announcements, live-streaming access, and easy access to online resources such as videos, ringtones, wallpapers, and important dos and don’ts.
The app is already available for pilgrims to download from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
Regarding the launch, Sri YV Subba Reddy, TTD Trust Board Chairman said,
The app is designed to streamline communication, event updates, bookings, digital content, e-Hundi payments and ultimately elevate the overall devotional experience for all the pilgrims.
It’s a universal app that acts as a “Hand Guide” to pilgrims. Even they can even watch all Four SVBC live programs in this app. Undoubtedly, it’s a first of its kind Religious App.
Regarding the launch, TTD EO Sri AV Dharma Reddy said,
We have been working with the JIO team for the past two years to bring out this fully personalized pilgrim-friendly app that presents a wide array of features which includes real-time updates on events and activities happening in Tirumala providing a seamless experience to the pilgrim using the app.
