On December 11th 2016, Pavithrotsavam was celebrated in a grand manner at Australia Helensburg Sri Venkateswara Perumal Temple. On this occasion Sri Perumal along with Ubhaya Nachiyars had beautiful alangaram followed by Purappadu on Garuda Vahanam. Many devotees participated in the Utsavam and received the blessings of Divyadampathis.

Lapses in the performance of the Aaraadhanam are recognized and a detailed ceremony consisting of homam in front of the Utsava Moorty at a specailly constructed yaaga saala.
