Fervour marks ‘Kaisika Dwadasi’ at Tirumala

Fervour marked the annual Kaisika Dwadasi festival on Friday at the famous hill temple of Lord Venkateswara.

The idol of ‘Ugra Srinivas,’ which is brought out of the sanctum sanctorum of the hill temple only once in a year on this day, was taken out in a grand procession around the mada streets encircling the holy shrine before the break of the dawn on a golden palanquin as is the tradition.

Later the priests conducted Asthanam to the deities inside the temple and read out the significance of the festival.
