The five-day annual Theppotsavam at the famous hill temple of Lord Venkateswara concluded on a grand note here on Thursday.

The processional deities of Lord Malayappa Swamy flanked along side with his two divine consorts were taken around in a grand procession to the venue -- Sri Vari Pushkarini situated adjacent to the main temple complex.

Decorated

The deities mounted atop the exquisitely decorated two-tier flotilla were then dragged in the tank waters.

Thousands who sat on the steps of the temple tank witnessing the colourful festival that lasted for over 90 minutes were also treated to Nadaswaram music played by the temple musicians.
