POURNAMI GARUDA SEVA AT TIRUMALA
TIRUMALA, OCT 18:The Pournami Garuda Seva performed at Tirumala on friday evening following the advent of Pournami.
TTD has started performing Pournami Garuda Seva during every Pournami of every month since 2006 for the sake of the visiting pilgrims. Usually this event is the main one during nine-day brahmotsavams as lakhs of pilgrims throng to witness the grandeur of Lord on this day. However, in the larger interests of the pilgrims, TTD began Pournami Garuda Seva during every Pournami with an aim to provide an opportunity to the pilgrims those who fail to make it on Brahmotsavams.
