TIRUMALA: The annual budget festival of Anivara Asthanam was held Sunday with religious fervor at Srivari Temple. Speaking on the occasion, TTD EO AV Dharma Reddy said, “Traditionally, this festival is observed on the day the Sun God enters Dakshinayana at Karkataka Rasi. It was on this day that Mahants (former directors of the Srivari temple) submitted the list of expenses, assets and inventory. But since the TTD took over the administration of the Tirumala Temple, the same functions were transferred to March-April. But the festival is observed symbolically at the end of Ani Masam, the last day according to the Tamil calendar of the month of Ani.

Previously, the utsava idols of Sri Malayappa Swamy and his wives sat on Sarvabhoopala Vahanam at Bangaru Vakili, along with Sri Vishwaksena and special pujas including Roopayi Harati, Prasadam and Kainkaryams were performed for them and also at Mula Virat simultaneously. Pontiff Tirumala Pedda Jeeyar Swamy presented six large vast pattu to the Srivari temple.
