LORD KODANDARAMA RIDES ‘SIMHA VAHANAM’
Tirupati, 27 March, 2017: Lord Sri Kodandarama took celestial ride on the ferocious lion vahanam on the bright morning on Monday and majestically went round the town as a part of the ongoing annual Brahmotsavams.
On the third day of the nine-day fete, the deity was taken on ‘Simha Vahanam’ around the temple precincts. Led by the elephants, horses and bulls forming part of the temple paraphernalia, the procession of the deity on the celestial carrier ‘Simha’ attracted the attention of one and all. ‘Stotra Vangmayam’ says the Lord appears as a fierce lion in the heart of the demons and it is hence, the Lord, depicted as personification of valour, is taken on the lion.
DyEO Smt Munilakshmi, EE Sri Jagadeeswara Reddy, Temple Supdt Sri Uma Maheswara Reddy, Temple Inspector Sri Sesha Reddy and others took part.
