The holy month of Karthika in November takes the privilege to observe the Varsha Tirunakshatrotsavams of famous Sri Vaishnava Saints and some of the Alwars, who dedicated their lives in the service of Lord Venkateswara including the Divine Commander in chief Viswaksena.
Every day is a festival day in the abode of Lord Venkateswara in Tirumala. It is believed that Lord enjoys nearly 450 utsavams all through the year and therefore, every moment in Tirumala is considered a festive occasion.
Apart from taking part in the grandeur of His own celestial festivals, the Lord also equally celebrates the Tirunakshatrotsavams of His ardent devotees. The month of November holds the credit of observing the birth anniversaries of many ardent devotees of Lord including the Senai Mudaliar Tirunakshatram who is none other than the commander in chief of Lord, Sri Viswaksena, three Alwars collectively known as Mudhal Alwars, Manavala Mahamuni tirunakshatrams also fall in this month.
