Witness the Annual Holy Festival in Tirumala
Get ready to embark on a spiritual journey like no other as Tirumala gears up to celebrate the much-awaited Annual Holy Festival. From August 27th to 29th, devotees of Srivari will gather to partake in the sacred rituals and experience the divine essence that permeates the air in this holy place.
The festivities kick off with the Ankurarpana, a ceremony held to consecrate the Srivari Temple. Led by Vishwaksena, the esteemed leader of Srivari Sarva Sena, a grand procession will make its way through the streets of Ellundi, spreading joy and devotion among the devotees.
For three days, starting from August 29th, the annual holy festival will be held, filling the temple premises with an atmosphere of spirituality and reverence. It is during these auspicious days that the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) cancels all acquired services to ensure the sanctity and integrity of the event.
Ancient Traditions and Sacred Festivals
The sacredness of Tirumala can be traced back to the 15th and 16th centuries, where evidence of sacred festivals being held in this divine abode can be found. Over the centuries, devotees from all walks of life have flocked to Tirumala to seek blessings and experience a deep connection with the divine.
Despite the best efforts of the pilgrims and staff, mistakes can unknowingly occur during the archanas and festivals held throughout the year. However, the sanctity of the temple remains untainted, as the divine presence shines through, enveloping all in its grace.
Plan Your Divine Visit to Tirumala
Now is the perfect time to plan your visit to Tirumala and be a part of the divine celebrations. The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) is releasing special darshan tickets for the month of November today, ensuring that you have a chance to witness the divine presence up close and personal.
In addition to the special darshan tickets, the online accommodation quota for the month of November will also be released on the 25th. This gives you the opportunity to secure a comfortable and convenient stay during your visit, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the divine atmosphere of Tirumala.
Experience the Joy of Serenity with Reduced Crowds
One of the silver linings of the current situation is the reduced crowd of devotees in Tirumala. This means that you can experience a more serene and peaceful darshan of Srivari. Instead of waiting for hours, devotees now have the chance to visit Srivari Sarvadarshan in just 6 hours, ensuring a smoother and more fulfilling experience.
On Wednesday alone, a staggering 71,122 people visited Srivari, with 29,121 devotees offering talanilas. The overwhelming response and support from devotees further cement the significance of Tirumala as a spiritual haven.
As a testament to the devotion and love showered upon Srivari, the income from Srivari Hundi amounted to a remarkable 3.76 crores. It is through the generous contributions of devotees that the temple continues to thrive and uphold its sacred traditions.
