A grand golden chariot festival marked the second day of the ongoing three-day Vasanthothsavam in the temple of Goddess Padmavathi at Tiruchanur on Tuesday.

The bejewelled deity of the Goddess mounted on the gleaming golden chariot was pulled round the mada streets of the shrine by devotees amid shouts of ‘Govinda Govinda'.

The annual fete will conclude on Wednesday, said Gopalakrishna, Deputy Executive Officer of the TTD-run temple. He said that elaborate arrangements had been made to spruce up the temple for the event and to meet the pilgrim rush.
