Tirumala temple going greener way - uses solar and wind power

Tirumala Tirupati  temple the abode of Lord Venkateswara is going the greener way . The temple is very famous pilgrimage place of India situated on a hill top (Venkatachalam) in Andhra Pradesh State and is visited on an average by 50,000 pilgrims daily. Given the mammoth number of pilgrims visiting and staying there, power requirement is high. There are many restaurants, cottages , hotels, rest rooms etc.  It is almost like a small city ruled by the Lord . May be due to the power and influence of God or something else the adaption of green technologies is praise worthy on the temple hill unlike the slower tendency for non- conventional sources of energy in the rest of the  country.From gardening to cooking, only non-conventional sources of energy are now being used in the temples of Tirupati.
