    The festival involves taking the ‘utsava vigrahalu’ from Chota Bazar to the temple in Golconda Fort. The festival started on a Sunday due to the timing of the new moon, and will continue until July 29.

    Ministers Konda Surekha and Ponnam Prabhakar participated in the festivities, offering silk clothes and joining a procession with a 23-foot-tall structure. They also donated money to the temple.
