Vasanthotsavams from Apr 12
Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams(TTD) will conduct a three-day annual Vasanthotsavams here from April 12 in a grand manner.
The annual festival usually starts on Tryodasi in the month of Chaitra (March/April), and concludes on Pournimi. On all the days, Sri Malayappa Swami and his two consorts are taken around in a procession and brought to the Vasanta mantapam, where Abhishekam is done, a TTD release here said.
On the third day, Sri Rama with Sita, Lakshmana and Anjaneya and Sri Krishna with Rukmini and Satyabhama are also taken out in procession and brought to the Vasanta Mantapam where snapanam is performed with religious fervour.
TTD has cancelled all Arjitha Sevas in view of this festival on these three days.
