Kalyanotsavam Tirumala, marks the hour-long celestial wedding ritual performed according Vaikasa Agama Sastra for the Utsava Murthis of the Lord along with His consorts Sri Devi and Bhu Devi in the Kalyana Mandapam. Priest conducts the marriage and an archaka is consecrated to perform other rituals on behalf of the bridegroom.
