  • Each individual will get 2 laddus by default and You can book up to 8 extra laddus, with each costing 25 rupees.  The special entry darshan ticket will cost 300 INR.

Step 6 : Verify Accompanying Pilgrims details and Confirm the Payment Option : You will be given an option to verify the detail before you make the payment. You will see a screen like below. You will need to choose a payment option. Both are very much same, just one payment is processed by Andhra Bank, other one is by ICICI bank.  I chose Andhra Bank, as it never failed and I had bad experience with ICICI bank.

    Step 7 : Payment :  In this step, you will asked to select one of the payment methods listed and proceed further. I chose NetBanking and it was seamless. It should work for any option as it is done by BillDesk, which is very reliable.  Your bank related screens will appear once you chose the bank under netbanking. You will go through payment process related to the bank and then you will be redirected to the TTD website.

    Step 8 : Confirmation :  If your payment is successful, you will get the below screen saying the booking reference number and you will have an option to print as well. I suggest that you should save it as PDF. If you miss, no worries, you can see it under the transactions.

    Did I miss anything ? Do you have any questions ?

    Note : We do NOT provide any services around booking Darshan. The above guide is to help you book darshan tickets on your own.  Beware of cheating ! You can do it on your own, do not pay anyone.

    6. Thanks a lot Kumar for this nice & to the point guide. I was planning to book online darshan tickets as well. However, I have a short query –
      Can I book tickets on behalf of my family members? Like my mom,uncle,aunt & sister is planning to visit Titupati. So, can I create an account with my personal details on TTD and register my family member’s names as pilgrims (without me accompanying them)? If not, kindly suggest me a workaround.

      Thanks a lot again for your help!

      • The primary applicant is mandatory to be there. You can register an account for one of your relatives or parents and do the entire process. I did the same for my parents. Make sure you give their photo, phone number, proof details, it works fine.

        • Thanks a lot for your guidance. However, while going through the booking process, i found two options – self & others – i continued with others and booked the tickets. I hope everything is fine. Thanks a lot again!

    7. Sir in the rgistraion process emailid add is one we are using

    8. What is the size of JPG/PDF line can be uploaded. Self and wife are planning for Darshan in the month of November. We have PAN card and Photo in jpeg file. But Aadhar card file is very big 400KB.
      Pl. advise.

      • You can always minimize size online using compress sites. Just google compress jpg or png, and use the same to reduce size.

    9. Sir we are a group of four and three have the ids as per requirement. One boy has only school id. Can we book on line for him too or what should we need to do?

    10. Hello Sir

      • Ritesh,
        You can only book 6 in total for one ID. You will need to register new ID for one more person and book under their name.

    11. I have not account in andhra bank and icici bank . payment transaction amount which bank using for payment. ? Pls answer this question. my account is Indian overseas Bank.

      • poornima,
        it is only the payment gateway that is from ICICI and Andhra Bank. It does not matter, which one you use. You can use your Indian Overseas bank in NetBanking or debit card and still make payment.

    12. Is there any restriction on the number of days between two online booking for sevas as well as special entry darshan?

    13. Sir or madam iam doing online registration in new user every thing is ok but in password anything iwiil enter it not taking can u help me my password is Pd.9

    14. Thank you for the very well-articulated steps here. This is very helpful. I am running into an issue on the website, hope you can help / advise.

      I am following the exact steps you have described. When I click “Pay Now” on step 6, the screen doesn’t go to step 7. I have tried from various computers, various web browsers, at various times of the day and night. No luck. I have tried the Andhra Gateway as well as the ICICI Gateway. No luck.

      I live in the US, and unfortunately the toll free numbers don’t work from US. And, I tried emailing their helpdesk, but no response.

      Any help or advise appreciated.

      • Sanjay,
        Very strange, it should work. I have tried it on different browsers and computers, including different countries, it works fine…Give it a try again, maybe there was an issue on the day you tried.
