Soon, visitors to Tirumala will have the chance to see a special 7D technology display of Lord Sri Venkateswara Swamy’s Vishwarupa darshan at the SV Museum. The museum is being built to international standards and will be completed by the end of the year. TCS and MAP Systems are contributing a total of Rs 145 crore to this project as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility initiative.
The museum will have three floors and 19 galleries. On the first floor, there will be displays of the Tirumala temple’s sculptures, devotees, Lord Sri Venkateswara Swamy, and their contributions, as well as ancient war equipment, musical instruments, and pooja paraphernalia. The second floor will feature galleries on Virat Purusha, Brahma Maheshwara, Rig Veda, and Yajur Veda.
On the third floor, the Brahmanda Gallery will use the latest 7D technology to entertain visitors. Additionally, 17 Gopurams are being prepared and will be named after devoted followers of Lord Sri Venkateswara Swamy, such as Sri Ramanujacharya, Sri Adi Shankaracharya, Sri Madhwacharya, Sri Tallapaka Annamacharya, and Matrusri Tarigonda Vengamamba. The goal is to provide a memorable experience for devotees by allowing them to visit this modern museum after seeing the Mula Virat.
Museum curator Siva Kumar and other officials were present at the briefing given by TTD Museum officer Krishna Reddy.
