Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena today arrived in Tirumala - the sacred abode of Lord Venkateswara - on his third visit as the head of the state.

Accompanied by his wife Jayanthi Pushpa Kumari and other Sri Lankan officials, Sirisena reached Tirupati from Bengaluru by road.

After an overnight stay, he and his family were expected to participate in 'Suprabhatha" recitation ritual inside the temple early tomorrow, temple sources told PTI.

He would leave soon after offering prayers to Lord Venkateswara, the sources said.

This is his third visit to the Tirumala hills as Sri Lankan president. He previously visited in February 2015 and last year in August.
