LEGEND OF SRIVARI TIRUNAMAM
The main idol of Sri Venkateshwara is donned with the Tirunamam of sandal powder, Karpooram, and Kasturi once a week after the Friday Abhisekam.
On Thursdays, during the Sadalimpu period (when ornaments are changed) Tirunamam is slightly reduced to make lords eyes visible. The Tirunamam also hailed as Tirumanikappu comprised, of 16 tolas of Pachcha Karpooram and 1.5 tolas of Kasturi.
The bright red figure in the Tirunamam signified the Atma (soul). Many devotees wear Tirunamam on their shoulders, chest, back etc. indicating that they were ardent followers and Sevaks of Sri Venkateshwara.
