Are you planning to visit Sri Padmamavathi Ammavari Temple, Tiruchanur and other local temples? Then here is the best way to get quick darshan in all local temples i.e., APTDC package tours
⏺️APTDC operates package tours for local temples from Srinivasam complex, Tirupati
⏺️Srinivasam complex is situated near Tirupati main bus stand click here Subway is available from Tirupati main bus stand to Srinivasam complex. So no tension of crossing busy road
to do?
⏺️Take a room or free locker for night stay at Srinivasam complex (if you have not booked any accommodation)
🔸5 temples package tour consists of following temples:
1) Sri Kapileswara Swamy Temple, Tirupati - click here
2) Sri Agastheshwara Temple, Thondavada - click here
3) Kalyana Venkateswara Temple, Srinivasa Mangapuram - click here
4) Sri Padmavathi Ammavari Temple, Tiruchanur - click here

⏺️Bus ticket booking for 5 temples package tour opens at 06:00 AM for first trip. But it is advisable to stand in the queue at or after 05:00 AM (if you want front seats in the bus). If you are travelling in group, any one person can stand in queue
⏺️Ticket booking timings for 5 temples package tour: From 06:00 AM to 01:00 PM
🔸I went to 5 temples package tour in Non-A/c bus in first trip (06:00 AM). Bus fare per person was ₹.100
⏺️Seat numbers will be written in ticket. People must sit in respective seats
⏺️You will be routed via quick darshan in all temples
⏺️Guide will accompany you at all temples
⏺️Breakfast will be provided in a mess after visiting Sri Kapileswara Swamy Temple and Sri Agastheshwara Temple, Thondavada. Breakfast must be paid individually by pilgrims
⏺️You will be dropped near Sri Govindaraja Swamy Temple, Tirupati i.e., last temple in the tour (nearby Tirupati railway station)
⏺️You have to show your bus ticket to enter quick darshan at Sri Govindaraja Swamy Temple
⏺️Luggage, mobiles and footwear must be left in bus when you are going for darshan
🔸Distance from Srinivasam complex
⏺️Alipiri (Starting place for pilgrims who want to visit the temple of Lord Venkateshwara by trekking foot path route)➡️4 km
⏺️Tirumala➡️22 km
⏺️Sri Govindaraja Swamy Temple➡️1.5 km
⏺️Sri Kapileswara Swamy Temple➡️3 km

Very useful . But whenever I go TPTY I use to stay at Vishnu Nivas or govindaraja cottage near railway station . I prefer it because near it we have Tirupati temple ( keel Tirupati temple) at walkable distance so and also we can walk from Railway station from platform 1 there is a FOB .

I stayed at Srinivasam complex till now as bus stand is nearby. Me and my group usually travel to Kanipakam, Srikalahasti, Kanchipuram, Vellore along with local temples. So didn't stay at Vishnu Nivasam till date. Did you stay in room or locker at Vishnu Nivasam?

Just last week i went to Tirumala/Thirupathi, from that observation i am sharing this tip if it was old tip pls ignore.

To reach Tirumala from Tirupathi railway station go to the extreme end of FOB next to platform 1, while descending itself u can see gov bus conductors will issue a ticket to reach tirumala hills and bus will be parked adjacent itself. Every 1 minute bus frequency will be available from Tirupathi railway station.Also to reach Alipiri or Srivari mettu Foothills (those who want to go by using footsteps
to Tirumala) small mini bus too available from Tirupathi railway station but frequency will be skeleton services.

If u r able to walk means, Tirupathi bus stand will be just 5 minutes walk, just wait on the main road close to bus stand free bus services to Alipiri gate(foothills for pilgrims who want to go by footsteps to Tirumala, but frequency will be maximum every 30 minutes). I used this free bus for my last week Tirumala visit.
