Unusual low temperatures in Tirumala are causing great inconvenience to the pilgrims. The temperatures are as low as 25 degrees in the day time and 15 degrees by night. As such, pilgrims are hesitating to leave their rooms to go for darshan. Especially after it is dark, the main entrance of the temple and the streets in front of it are deserted, which is an unusual sign. Winter wear like sweaters and mufflers are selling like hot cakes and devotees are making a beeline to the tea stalls.
