Tirumala, Andhra Pradesh, Oct 8 (UNI) Tens and thousands of devotees witnessed the 'Rathotsavam,' here this morning, the penultimate day of the nine-day Brahmotsavams of Sri Venkateswara Temple.
Devotees vied with one another to drag the beautifully decorated chariot of Sri Venkateswara around the four mada streets.
Although the processional deities of Lord Malayappaswamy and his consorts Sridevi and Bhoodevi were brought to the 'Ratha Mandapam ' in the small hours of today, the chariot began its journey only at 0715 hrs.
