Vaikuntam Queue Complex :   
     The entrance for darshan is through the Vaikuntam Queue Complex. The complex is a series of inter-connected halls that leads to the main temple. An efficient queue system ensures that pilgrims move in an orderly fashion through the Queue Complex, towards the main temple.  
The halls in the Queue Complex are clean, spacious and airy.  TTD provides a wide range of facilities in the Queue Complex:  
  • Free Food, Milk, Coffee, Tea are provided to pilgrims waiting in VQC.
  • Free Medical aid
  • Sale of photographs, calendars and other TTD publications 
  • Toilets 
  • Closed Circuit Television, through which devotional programs and music are relayed
  • Cloak rooms near the Vaikuntam Queue Complex entrance
  • Places where footwear can be deposited at free of cost (at the entrance) 
There are officers to look after the facilities in the Vaikuntam Queue Complex, regulate the queues and attend to complaints. 
Sarva Darshan :
      Sarvadarshan means 'darshan for all'. The timings for Sarvadarshan are different on different days of the week.  On normal days, about 18 hours are allotted for Sarvadarshan and on peak days, it is open for 20 hours.
      Around 50,000 pilgrims visit the main temple every day.

  Divya Darshan :
   1. Divya Darshan facility is provided for pedestrian who came by foot to Tirumala through Gali Gopuram or Srivari Mettu.
   2. Bio-metric counters are established on these foot paths, to facilitate free darshan, free accommodation (P.A.C), free tonsuring and free food facilities at Tirumala.
   3. There is vigilance check at two places in foot path, i.e. near Gali gopuram and 1500th step of sreevari mettu, to avoid misuse of free tokens for divya darshan. The vigillance people will put a stamp on the token, if the stamp is not there on the token, that token is invalid.
Sudarshan token System :
The Sudarshan token system was introduced to minimize the waiting time for Sarvadarshan, Special Darshan and other paid darshan/sevas. The time of darshan is indicated on the tokens. Pilgrims can enter the Vaikuntam Queue Complex at Tirumala at the time indicated on the tokens. They can have darshan within two hours of entering the Queue Complex. As this system saves on waiting time, it provides pilgrims with enough time to visit temples in the vicinity like Sri Govindarajaswami Temple and Kapila Teertham at Tirupati, Sri Padmavathi Ammavari Temple at Tiruchanur and Sri Kalyana Venkateswara Swami Temple at Srinivasa Mangapuram. To help TTD keep a track of the number of pilgrims and ensure their smooth flow, one token is issued per head. Collective tokens for groups are not issued. Sudarshan tokens to a tune of 7500 per day are being issued totally which includes 5000 tokens of Rs.50/- and 2500 tokens of free tokens. Tokens will be issued from 5a.m.
Some precautions to take:
    - Collect your Sudarsan token only from TTD-run counters. Tokens issued by others are not valid.  Do not exchange tokens.
    - Do not trust touts.
