Tirupati: The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) has announced that Sri Venkateswara Vaibhavotsavams would be held in a grand manner at the NTR Stadium in Hyderabad from October 11 to 15.
The religious event is intended to showcase all the rituals and ceremonies that are being performed at the hill temple of Lord Venkateswara at Tirumala.
TTD chairman YV Subba Reddy told the media in Tirumala on Wednesday that the event replicates all the Nitya Kainkaryams that are performed every day at the temple, to the devotees who are not otherwise fortunate to witness them on a daily basis.
