TIRUPATI:  The gopurams of the sanctum sanctorum of Sri Bhu Varahaswamy temple at Tirumala and Sri Govindaraja Swamy temple at Tirupati will soon glitter as the TTD officials planning to gold-plate them.
“Gold plating work will be taken up for the gopurams soon and the temples will be closed for three to four days to carry out the works,” TTD executive officer Anil Kumar Singhal said.

The priests of these respective temples said that the engineers have informed them that for taking up gold-plating works, the temples have to be closed for 40 days at a stretch, which was not possible. So, the TTD found an agency which has expertise in 3D printing work. 

With the help of 3-dimensional picturisation, the replica of the gopurams have been designed with Plaster of Paris. The agency has taken the measurements for the PoP models and accordingly, completed copper moulding and gold-plating works.
