The 15-day Sri Veerammathalli Tirunallu began with gaiety and religious fervour on Friday. The annual event begins on Magha Suddha Ekadasi (Bhishma Ekadasi). It is believed that on the first day of the annual event, Sri Veerammathalli, along with her husband Kanakachintaiah, comes out of her in-laws house (temple), which marks the commencement of Tirunallu.
Women in large numbers welcome the Goddess with the traditional Harathi. Later, she is taken in a procession through the village.
As per the tradition, the head of Vuyyuru Police Station, along with his wife, worships the Goddess first and offers silk clothes to Sri Veerammathalli. Special pujas are also performed at the police station to mark the occasion.
After that, the procession of the Goddess covers all the main streets in the village. The Goddess reenters the temple on the second day after the end of Gramotsavam.
Devotees in large numbers from various parts of Krishna and neighbouring districts will visit the temple during the Tirunallu to seek the blessings of Sri Veerammathalli.
Cultural programmes and folk arts will be organised during the festival.
The temple committee has made special arrangements to meet the devotee rush during Tirunallu and to enable them to fulfill their vows to the Goddess in a hassle-free atmosphere.
