TIRUMALA: The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) website is being redesigned on the lines of Wikipedia and the management has drafted seven stages with the help of internationally reputed web-construction majors such as TCS.
The project would address the problems faced by the existing site www. tirumala.org and provide comprehensive information on TTD, the Lord, vedas, puranas, temple culture, employees, recruitment, daily prasadam sale, accommodation, purchases, charity works, projects and information on other temples among others. Also, information on religion, moral values, poets, saints and modern age writers would be present.
The TTD said panchangam would be available on the TTD site. The Executive Officer D Sambasiva Rao said the TTD panchangam is being broadcast via Internet, after considering the requests from devotees.
“Very rare photographs will be uploaded on the site. The devotees can also get their pilgrimage related queries addressed via the website,” said Rao.
“Within two months, we will seek public inputs for the website. After going through the suggestions made, we will incorporate the suitable ones,” he said, adding that the TTD portal would soon become a ‘next generation website’.
In the first stage of website development, the management has focused on the TTD wealth. As many as 29 volumes of literary works on the Lord Venkateswara by saint poet Annamachary would be available in the website.
