Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams earned Rs. 107 crore on Thursday through e-auction of human hair. It is estimated that over 64,760 kg of hair was disposed of in the auction.
In the temple’s history, informed sources said, this was the second highest-ever return recorded from auctioning of human hair, the first being Rs.130 crore earned last June. Meanwhile, a devotee from Chennai, who wished to remain anonymous, on Friday donated a golden Salagrama haram (necklace) worth Rs. 3 crore to the Tirumala temple.
