The Pournami Garuda Seva performed at Tirumala on Monday evening following the advent of Pournami on 5 January 2015.
TTD has started performing Pournami Garuda Seva during every Pournami of every month since 2006 for the sake of the visiting pilgrims. Usually this event is the main one during nine-day brahmotsavams as lakhs of pilgrims throng to witness the grandeur of Lord on this day. However, in the larger interests of the pilgrims, TTD began Pournami Garuda Seva during every Pournami with an aim to provide an opportunity to the pilgrims those who fail to make it on Brahmotsavams.
This event has gathered huge reception among the devotees and pilgrims, as tens of thousands of pilgrims converge to witness the procession of Lord Malayappa Swamy in the four-mada streets during every Pournami.
TTD EO Dr Sambasiva Rao, DyEO Sri Chinnamgari Ramana, Addl CVSO Sri Sivakumar Reddy, Temple Peishkar Sri Selvam and others took part.
