Explanation:

This error occurred while trying to access the TFS 2012 update 3 server team project website for viewing boards or creating PBIs, bugs and other work items. The error can be reproduced by clicking back and forth a few times between the home page and CODE, WORK, TEST, etc. The issue was specific to one specific collection in the server. 

Fix:

One of the team project's shared query with wrong condition clause was trying to load 73000+ WIs which was pinned to the Team Favorites in the home page causing the issue. The issue was resolved after correcting the query.
