Mukkoti Dwadashi, Vaikunta Dwadasi festival in Tirumala Tirupati

Mukkoti Dwadashi, also known as Vaikunta Dwadasi, is the festival observed on the day after Vaikunta Ekadashi or Mukkoti Ekadasi. In 2015, Mukkoti Dwadashi date is January 2 & December 22.

Mukkoti Pradakshinam is the major ritual during the festival in Tirumala Tirupati Sri Balaji temple.

Punya Snanam in Mukkoti Theertham or Swami Pushkarini Theertham is the auspicious event during Mukkoti Dwadasi day. Devotees observe ritual bath in Swami Pushkarini theertha and perform Pradakshinam (circumambulation) around the Balaji temple.

This is a special celebration because the path on which Mukkoti pradakshinam goes on is opened only once in a year.

In 2014, Mukkoti Dwadashi date was January 12.
