Srinivasa Mangapuram, 18 October,2014: As the annual three-day pavitrotsavams at Sri Kalyana Venkateswara Swamy temple in Srinivasa Mangapuram is scheduled from 19 to 21 of this month, Ankurarpanam has been performed in the temple with
religious fervour on Saturday evening.
The priests collected the ‘Putta mannu’ (sacred earth) required for Yagasala inside the temple. After the completion of certain religious formalities, the ‘nava dhanyams’ were ceremoniously sown in the earthen pots inside the Yagasala for germination — marking the commencement of the spiritual fiesta.
