According to the temple Legend, the Vasanthotsavam Festival was started during the period of King Achyutaraya in the 1460s. This annual fete was believed to have introduced by the King to mark the arrival of Spring Season. Lord and his Consorts are given aromatic bath on these three days which is believed to give a soothing relief to the deities from the scorching Sun. Vasanthotsavam in Tirumala is being observed as a daily Arjitha Seva and also annual three-day Seva during the spring season.

Later the processional deities decorated in “Dhawala Vastrams”(draped in white silk clothes) seated on the Abhishekapeetham rendered aromatic bath with holy ingredients by a team of Archakas and finally, the Utsavam Murthis (deities ) are decorated with the sacred “Tulasi Malas” and rendered Harati. |
