On 19th July 2015; Manmadha Varusha Aadi Magam, the annual Sakshatkara Vaibhavam commenced at Srinivasa Mangapuram Sri Kalyana Venkateswara Swamy Temple. Sri Kalyana Venkatesawara Swamy had Swapna Thirumanjanam in the morning.
According to an inscription dated March 22, 1510 AD found on the temple at the entrance, the temple was brought to worship after renovation by Chinna Thirumalacharyulu, the grandson of the Saint Poet Thallapaka Annamcharyulu.
In 1940, an Archaka by name Sundararaja, from Kanchipuram of Tamil Nadu had come to Mangapuram, saying that the Lord Srinivasa had appeared in his dream and ordained him to bring the temple to past glory, which was in a dilapidated condition.
The Archaka then cleared all the debris in and around the temple with the help of village elders and did the first pooja on 11th July 1940 ‘Ashada Suddha Sasti Day’, the auspicious time fixed by the Lord Himself in his dream.
To mark the auspicious day when the daily rituals were revived in the temple as ordained by the Lord Himself, TTD has been conducting this festival as ‘Sakshatkara Vaibhavam’ in the month of June/July of every year.
