300 rs ticket


  1. Sir yesterday we have booked 6 tickets of 300rs special darshan yesterday for 21st 6pm and successfully completed. But we did not get any information if timings or details by our mail or mobile. When we checked in the website it is showing confirmed but we don’t know the timings and the entrance place. Kindly help us with full details.

    • @JP Krishna, did you download the confirmation ticket.. Since 300 Rs. is a new ticket not a lot of information available at present, we will update them soon. We have contacted the officials regarding that and we will be updating shortly. In the mean time go earlier (1 to 2hrs early) to make sure you don’t miss on the darshan.

      • Sir, Tried booking 300 rupees tickets on the website.. After long wait, updated all details.. I am from Mumbai and clicked Maharashtra state. In drop down box of districts, there is no option to select Mumbai as the drop down box has only Tamil Nadu districts… So booking is not being taken for outside state? If I click Chennai, then it moves forward but says error as I have put Maharashtra state and Chennai District.. So unable to book tickets… Also website speed is pathetic.. See and learn from IRCTC website and they too handle lakhs of bookings every day.. It’s unfair for outside state visitors as the website has no option for the same

    • sir how to book….the date and timings doesn’t gets highlighted for sahasranama booking. how to book 300rs ticket………….kindly guide me

    • Can you please share the flow after accepting the terms and conditions and submit … Once i submitted the system says loading for the past 1 hr.

      • @Bala some people are lucky to get it. Just keep trying or go for free darshan. At present the crowd is controlled so free darshan should not take you more than 4 hours.

    • @JP Krishna congratulation for successful booking, i am trying fr the last 10 days but it come only up to clicking the term and conditions, then never proceeds further, (like request 13…) Please guide and give some tips on how to book. Internet speed ins also okay. Thankyou @k_dakshin69

  2. Hello ji can you say how to book more than 1 person and if that possible, how many people can we add.. i can see ADD nxt to age but it doesn’t work for me..

  3. i have entered aadhar details atleast 20 times and each time when submit button pressed, it shows different problem messages and not even once my submission was successful. Very disheartening and probably the system is designed for few to take advantage. Booking gets over in a jiffy

  4. Please inform how many days in advance can the tickets be booked? What are the timings of this special darshan?

  5. what is the arrangements for senior citizens.some quota other than 500 Rs ticket to be given as senior citizen quota

  7. We tried to book for 2 and ended up with booking 1 ticket. My husband got his ticket. Is there a separate queue for infants.we do have 6 mo lo.


    • @Saranya there is a separate Queue for Senior citizens and this queue apply for infants too.. Still you will be waiting for 2 hrs. But that’s better than a 7hr wait in a general queue.

    • Day before yesterday, my transaction went upto payment gateway and failed after few hours. But now am getting following errors while booking:-
      1-Too many requests already, try again later
      2-Token mismatch
      Kindly confirm above errors are due to existing of my Aadhaar number (bcos of failure in payment gateway). If so what to do further……

    • @Kumaresan weekends are always heavily crowded.. It also depends on what time you start in the Queue, usually takes anywhere between 5 to 7 hrs.

  8. Sir Whether on online booking if we give aadhar number whether it will fetch the name or match with the name since I am always getting ‘invalid input message’ error report and I can’t book it now. pl guide me

  9. I am trying to book 500rs ticket but it’s just losing for more then 40 mints but it doesn’t go to the payment gateway why
