Tirumala Brahmotsavam 2023 Date and Timings, Brahmotsavam Vahana Updates

- Navaratri Brahmotsavams from October 15 to 23
Legent of Twin Brahmotsavams in Tirumala
Legends say that in the early days of making Venkatadri (Tirumala) as His sacred abode, Sri Venkateswara Swamy had directed the Creator-Brahma to organise annual utsavas for the well-being of humanity.
Likewise, on Shravana Nakshatra of Kanya masa (Aswayuja month), Brahmadeva organised the nine-day festival, which is now popular as Brahmotsavam.
As per Chandramanam, every third year is Adhika month and hence the annual Brahmotsavam is held in Kanya masam(Bhadrapada) and in Dasara the Navaratri Brahmotsavam is performed.
The only difference between the two Brahmotsavams is that in the Navaratri Brahmotsavams, the events of Dwajarohanam and Dwajavarohanam will not be observed.
Anticipated Heavy Rush Days
As the Purattasi month coincides with both the brahmotsavams, heavy pilgrim rush is being anticipated this year. The holy month commences on September 18 and concludes on October 17. The Purattasi Saturdays occur on September 23, 30 and October 7, 14.
