On December 17, 2013; Vijaya Varusha Margazhi Mrigasheersham, being Pournami, Garuda Sevai took place at Tirumala. In the evening, purappadu for Sri Malayappa Swamy on Garuda Vahanam took place around the four mada streets.
TTD has been performing Pournami Garuda Seva during every Pournami of every month since 2006. Prior to that, Garuda Sevai took place only once during the 9-day Purattasi Brahmotsavams and lakhs of pilgrims thronged to witness the grandeur of Lord on this day. Pournami Garuda Seva was started to provide an opportunity to those devotees, who are unable to make it during the Brahmotsavams, to have this adbhuta sevai every month.
