It is called Angapradakshinam and it is done at the Lord Venkateswara temple at Tirupati in Andhra Pradesh.

Many devotees perform angapradakshinam more than once. This is a bit of a bother for temple authorities, Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams.

So, the temple authorities decided that those wishing to do angapradakshinam will have to present their Aadhaar cards so that the authorities can properly manage the ritual.

According to reports, the authorities will record the details of the devotees from their Aadhar cards and issue them a ticket.



The ticket will allow the devotees to perform angapradakshinam.
