Kalyanotsavam Tirumala Starting Time: 10 A.M

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.

The idols of The Lord and His brides face each other with a screen in between them. After the priests perform appropriate homam, the bridegroom and the brides are allowed to see each other at the appropriate auspicious moment as the screen is removed. This is followed by Mangala sutra dharana, Tahlambralu and then Lord and his consorts are garlanded.
