Dwaraka Tirumala: On the third day of Sri-vari Brahmotsavams, Lord Sri Venkateswara along with his two God-dess has been carried out on Suryaprabha Vahanam on Sunday morning and Chandraprabha Vahanam on night at Dwaraka Tirumala, known as ‘Chinna Tirupati’ in West Godavari.

There is very much significance on Suryaprabha Vahanam as Sun chariot, Surya or the sun is the ot-her form of Lord Vishnu, who is considered as the centre of the universe.

Devotees believe that it gives the Lord a soothing experience. Thousands of devotees participated in the Brahmotsavams with a great devotion.

Temple prime priest P.V.S.S.R. Jagannadha Charyulu said that Lord Venkateswara along with his two Goddesses would give blessings to devotees during this auspicious fete. The Lord and his two Goddesses have been decorated with various flowers brought from the nearby villages.
