A devotee from Telangana named Nalla Vijay recently presented two unique sarees to the Tirumala Sri Venkateswara Swamy and Tiruchanoor Sir Padmavati Devi temples in Tirupati. One of the sarees had a gold zari in-laid and both sarees could fit into a matchbox. The sarees were presented through Andhra Pradesh Chief Secretary K S Jawahar Reddy. The presentation took place at Sri Padmavati Rest House in Tirupati.
The saree presented to Srivaru cost around Rs 45,000, while the one donated to Ammavaru had 5 grams of gold zari in its weaving. The Tirupati temple is administered by TTD, which conducted the annual Pushpayagam ritual of flowers at Vontimitta Sri Kodandarama temple on Sunday evening. During the ritual, about 2.5 tonnes of flowers, encompassing 11 varieties, including six varieties of aromatic leaves were offered in a floral bath to the deities of Sri Sita Lakshmana sameta Sri Ramachandra Swamy.
Furthermore, Reddy directed TTD officials to make the services of the pediatric hospital available to the public by December. He inspected the construction work of the children’s hospital in Tirupati and also the work site of the feed mixing plant and second unit of agarbattis (incense sticks) at SV Gosala. With the new feed mixing plant, TTD cattle will receive better fodder to enhance their milk production while the second agarbattis unit will help meet the rising public demand for incense sticks.
Reddy appreciated the doctors’ team led by Srinath Reddy for performing 1,300 heart surgeries in the pediatric hospital, besides two heart transplants.
