Bali Beram

This Bali Beram / idol is known as Koluvu Srinivasa Murthy or Lekhana Srinivasa Murthy in Tirumala. It is made of five precious metals and resembles the silver idol of Bhoga Srinivasa Murthy.

A court (Koluvu) is held in the Snapana Mandapam on the golden throne supported by sculptured lions every day after Tomala Seva before the Archana. In this court, Koluvu Srinivasa Murthy is offered royal felicitations with chatra (the royal umbrella) and chamara (a fly-flap) befitting an emperor. The particulars of tithi (the number of the day in a month), vaara (weekday) and nakshatra (the presiding star) of the day are read from the Hindu Calendar (Panchanga Shravanam) alongwith the income and expenditure statement of the earlier day to this deity. Obviously, Koluvu Srinivasa Murthy is regarded as the supervising authority of the temple’s income and expenditure.
