Koil Alwar Thirumanjanam

It is performed four times a year which will be held for Ugadi, Anivara Asthanam, Annual Brahmotsavam and Vaikunta Ekadasi.

The temple, sub-temples inside Tirumala temple, puja utensils, roofs, walls, ceilings will be cleansed with an aromatic mixture called Parimalam which will be sprayed all over. This amalgamation acts as a disinfectant and this fete will be observed between 6 am and 9.00 am.

While the cleansing process is on, the Mula Murthi will be covered with a white veil. After the cleaning process of the temple is completed, the veil is removed and remaining rituals and pujas will be carried out to the presiding deity by the Archakas.

Temple cleaning usually takes 3 to 4 hours. Temple cleaning will be performed on Tuesday. After temple cleaning, Darshan services will be restored. The devotees will be allowed for the darshan of Sri Venkateswara Swamy after the special pujas on that day.

This activity will be performed by the TTD staff and is not available for the General public. So there won’t be any ticket booking for this Seva.
