Tirupati Balaji Temple In Jammu To Open Its Doors For Pilgrims On June 8

Reportedly, construction work of the Tirupati Balaji temple in Jammu has reached the final phase, and is all scheduled to open for pilgrims on June 8.

Set amid the scenic Shivalik forests in Majeen here, the temple has been built on a 62-acre land at an estimated cost of INR 30 crore. If records are to go by, the temple is also set to become one of the largest temples in the Jammu region, and will likely boost religious and pilgrimage tourism in the union territory.

The Jammu temple will be the sixth Balaji Temple constructed outside of Andhra Pradesh, with the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) having previously built temples in Hyderabad, Chennai, Kanyakumari, Delhi, and Bhubaneswar.

Referring to this, TTD Chairman YV Subba Reddy added that they have almost completed the construction of the temple, and that it will be thrown open for the devotees from June 8. He also informed that rituals in the temple will start from June 3.

While inspecting the temple in Jammu, he further added that the system and practice followed in Tirumala will be followed here as well.

This temple falls on the route between Jammu and Katra, where Vaishno Devi temple is also located. Also, the temple’s construction is part of a broader initiative by the TTD to establish multiple Balaji temples across the country.

If reports are to go by, the TTD is building Balaji Temples all across the country, so that those who are unable to visit the Tirupati Balaji Temple in Andhra Pradesh can visit these temples in other cities.
