On the sixth day evening of the ongoing Salakatla Brahmotsavams devotees were mused by the dazzling beauty of Sri Malayappa Swamy along with Sridevi and Bhudevi on the shining Swarnaratham.

The mammoth 32 feet tall Golden Chariot weighing around 29 tonnes was pulled swiftly along four mada streets by pilgrims chanting Govinda… Govinda… with religious ecstasy.
