SRI PAT PAVITROTSAVAMS FROM SEPT 6 TO 8
Tirupati, 1 September 2014: The three-day annual ‘Pavitrotsavams’ at Sri Padmavathi Ammavari Temple in Tiruchanur will take place from September 6 to 8 with Ankurarpanam on September 5.
The significance behind performing ‘Pavitrotsavam’ every year in the temples is to seek the pardon of the deity for any act of commission and omission committed inadvertently by the priests, by the temple authorities or by the visiting pilgrims and restore the purity in its original pristine form through the prescribed ritual – ‘Pavitrotsavam’.
As a prelude to the festival, the Koil Alwar Thirumanjanam will be performed on September 2. The pilgrims who are willing to take part in this event can pay Rs.750 per person for three days.
