High Court (HC) will hear the petition on live streaming of Maha Samprokshanam to be held at Tirumala temple from August 9th to August 17th. Earlier, the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) decided to close the temple during the ritual and deny devotees darshan. The officials said that they planned it that manner as they would be unable to manage the crowds. But the same rituals were held in 2006, without closing the temple. The court has urged Agama pundits to decide which of the rituals can be shown live and which may not.
