TTD, Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams, would set up a replica of its Tirumala Balaji Temple (Tirumala Tirupati Venkateswara Swamy Temple) at Allahabad Maha Kumbha Mela 2013. The replica of TTD Temple will be operated at Kumbha Mela from January 27, Paush Purnima Shahi Snan.
The TTD has decided in this connection to set up at the Mela, a model temple of Lord Venkateswara in such a way that it would serve as a virtual replica of the original shrine with all its splendour, as it exists on the Tirumala hills.
As per the officials of TTD, the model shrine would be every inch a mirror image of the famous Tirumala temple.
Usually during every Kumbhmela, TTD actively participated by setting up a model of Sri Venkateswara Temple and distributed prasad to the pilgrims.
The officials also said that whatever pujas and arjitha sevas we perform in the temple of Tirumala will be performed every day in the replica temple which would be set up in Sector VI at Kumbhmela starting from January 27 to March 13.
All these programmes will be aired live on SVBC. TTD also decided to give vigorous publicity to TTD publications, audio and video CDs.
