On the penultimate day of annual brahmotsavams at Tirumala, the grand procession of the mammoth wooden chariot was held on Monday.
The giant car marched along the jam-packed four mada streets with pilgrims on the bright Sunny Day.
The processional deities of Sri Malayappa Swamy, Sri Devi and Bhudevi mounted on a well-decked platform in the chariot was dragged by enthusiastic pilgrims who chanted Govinda… Govinda with religious ecstasy.
As Tallapaka Annamacharya described in his sankeertan, “the sky and earth became one as the Brahmanda Ratham marched along the streets and it is a treat to the eyes who witness the grand celestial procession of Maha Ratham”.
TTD EO Sri Anil Kumar Singhal, Addl EO Sri AV Dharma Reddy, CVSO Sri Gopinath Jatti, ACVO Sri Sivakumar Reddy, Temple DyEO Sri Haridranath, Peishkar Sri Lokanadham and others took part.
