Fervour marks Koil Alwar Thirumanjanam
Splendour marked the conduct of Koil Alwar Thirumanjanam on Tuesday at the famous hill temple of Lord Venkateswara.
A rich herbal paste containing the mixture of high quality sandalwood powder, refined camphor, vermilion, turmeric and other herbaceous aromatic ingredients were applied to all the walls, pillars and ceiling inside the sanctum sanctorum as well as at all the sub-temples situated inside the temple complex and were thoroughly cleaned. The idol of the presiding deity was provided with a cover while the idols of other deities were removed from inside the sanctum to facilitate the cleansing festival.
A huge contingent of over 450 employees headed by TTD’s Executive officer D. Sambasiva Rao enthusiastically part in the Thriumnajnam festival that lasted for more than four hours.
Meanwhile, the temple administration dispensed with the performance of the weekly ‘Astadala Padapadmaradhana Seva’ inside the temple.
The darshan lines which were briefly interrupted in the morning resumed soon after the conclusion of the festival.
