We hardly stayed in the waiting halls, the line kept moving…the darshan was done in about 1 hour or so…I am quite happy with the experience as we can buy additional laddus online as well…so it was seamless.

Some Key things to remember

  • An Individual person can book upto 6 tickets at at time.
  • You can only book 60 days before the actual darshan. The slots will NOT open before 60 days, so you cannot plan much ahead of time.
  • The page gives a time out error after every 10 min or 15 min, so be careful and enter details fast. It does not save the details of your fellow pilgrims.
  • No cancellation or refund of tickets, once paid and printed, it is done !
