Tirupati Kapileshwaraswamy Temple Brahmotsavam 2017

Tirupati Kapileshwaraswamy Temple Brahmotsavam 2017 begins on 17 February and ends on 26 February 2017.

The annual Brahmotsavams at the TTD-run Sri Kapileswara Swamy temple begins with splendour at this ancient temple in Tirupati with Dhwajarohana Mahotsavam.

This is one the most famous Lord Shiva temples under the umbrella of TTD known for its waterfalls and is visited by tens of thousands of devotees on their way to Tirumala, as it is located right beneath the imposing Tirumala hills.

The temple priests perform the rituals as prescribed in Saivagama, including an elaborate ‘Homam’ before hoisting the Nandi flag as part of ‘Dhwajarohanam’.

While the ‘Dhwajapatam’ (sacred flag) carries the image of ‘Garuda’ in all the Vaishnavite temples, the same here bears the image of ‘Nandi’, the celestial carrier of Lord Shiva.
