india Updated: Oct 30, 2009 19:07 IST

Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa, accompanied by his wife and a 50-member entourage, would offer prayers at the hill shrine of Lord Venkateswara at Tirumala.

Temple sources told PTI that Rajapaksa would arrive by a special Sri Lankan Aircraft at 11 AM from Kathmandu after completion of a two day pilgrimage-cum-official trip to Nepal.

He would offer worship and leave for Colombo at 4 pm from the Renigunta airport, 15 km from here, by the same aircraft, the sources said.

Rajapaksa had earlier visited the shrine on July 11 last year, they added.

A tight security blanket was being put in place on the Hills and the roads leading to the shrine from Renigunta Airport, police said.
