Tirupati: 'Dwajarohanam' was performed in Sri Kodanda Ramaswamy Temple in Tirupati on Monday, signalling the commencement of the nine-day annual Brahmotsavams. The sacred yellow cloth flag with the imprint of Lord Garuda, the celestial carrier of Lord Maha Vishnu, was hoisted atop the golden flag post 'Dwaja Sthambham' situated inside the temple complex at the auspicious Vrushabha lagnam at 10.30 am amidst traditional recitation of Vedic hymns by temple priests. Prior to the ceremony, the processional deities of Sri Kodanda Ramaswamy, Seetha Devi and Lakshmana along with the Dwajapatam were taken around the four mada streets encircling the shrine in a grand procession. It is believed that Lord Garuda goes round the temple complex extending invitations to all gods, heavenly bodies, rishis and the entire community of Gods to participate in the Brahmotsavams of the Lord. Deputy EO (Local Temples) Chandrasekhar Pillai, RDO Ramachandra Reddy, DPP Special Officer Raghunath, Superintendent Engineer Sudhakar Rao, Executive Engineer Jagadeeswara Reddy, Garden Superintendent Srinivas, Temple Superintendent Munisuresh Reddy, Temple Inspector Anjaneyulu, staff and devotees took part in the religious event.
