“UGRA SRINIVASA MURTHY” ENTHRALLS PILGRIMS ON KAISIKA DWADASI
TIRUMALA, 23 November 2015: The Srivari devotees had a rare spectre of the procession of Sri Ugra Srinivasa Murthy on Monday in Tirumala on the auspicious occasion of annual Kaisika Dwadasi.
The unique feature about this festival is that only on this day in the entire year the idol of Ugra Srinivasa Murthy is brought out from the sanctum sanctorum of the hill temple. Lord Ugra Srinivasa Murthy flanked by his two divine consorts Sri Devi and Bhu Devi mounted atop the golden Tiruchi was taken around the four mada streets encircling the holy shrine in a grand procession even before the break of dawn as per the the age-old tradition.
Later, the priests perform Kaisika Dwadasi Asthanam to the deities inside the temple. TTD EO Dr D Sambasiva Rao took part in this religious fete.
