Tirupathi Sri Govindarajaswamy Temple Vaikasi Brahmotsavam – Day 9



The nine-day annual Brahmotsavam of Sri Govindaraja Swamy temple came to a grand close with the auspicious ‘Chakrasnanam’ performed by temple priests in the holy waters of Kapila Theeertham tank, during the early hours of  May 22nd 2016.

Amid Vedic chants and recitals of verses from scriptures, the priests immersed the holy discus in the temple tank (Pushkarni), after a long lasting ritual. Chanting the ‘Govinda Namam’, hundreds of devotees took a dip in the holy waters of the tank with religious fervour. It is believed that a dip in the temple tank during ‘Chakrasnanam’ would wash away the sins of people taking part in the religious fête.
