Kothagudem: The famous historical Bhadradri Sita Ramachandra Swamy temple is gearing up for Brahmotsavams and Sri Rama Pattabhishekam celebrations. The celebrations will commence after Telugu New Year (Ugadi) in Vilambi nama samvastaram and Brahmotsavams will start from March 18, Sita Rama Kalyanam will be held on March 26, and Sri Rama Pattabhishekam is on March 27.
Temple chief priest Podicheti Jagannadha Charyulu speaking to The Hans India said on the day of Kalyanam, Punarvasu Deeksha, also called as Sri Rama Deeksha, will start. The Nithya Kalyanam, a regular programme in the temple premises, will not be conducted from March 22 to April 1. According to the chief priest, Garudadri sevanam will be held on March 22, Edurkollu celebrations on 25, Sri Sita Rama Kalyanam (Sri Rama Navami) on 26, Sri Rama Pattabhishekam on March 27.
There will be sadasayam, Unjal seva, Vasanthotsavam, and Chakra Snanam will be performed on the last day of the celebrations, i.e., on April 1 at River Godavari.This year Sri Rama Kalyanam is important since Vilambi year is the birth year of Lord Rama, the priest said. After 1958, again the day came this year. This day is also importance because participating in Sri Rama Kalyanam is equal to watching Maha Samraj Pattabhishekarm, which will come once in 60 years, he explained.

He discussed planning arrangements, dividing sectors and stadium places with the officials.
