Chairman of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) K. Radhakrishnan on Sunday offered prayers at the famous hill temple of Lord Venkateswara.

Mr. Radhakrishnan, who was warmly received on his arrival at the main entrance of the temple complex by the temple authorities and priests, also carried a facsimile miniature of the PSLV C22 scheduled to be launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota space port on Monday along with him and placed it at the feet of the presiding deity seeking his divine blessings.

Later, at the Ranganayakula mandapam situated inside the temple complex, while the temple priests showered Vedasirvachanams on him, the Dy.eo. (temple) C. Ramana and Peishkar R. Selvam presented him with the laddu prasadam and memento of the deity.
