Kalyanotsavam Tirumala

Kalyanotsavam Seva Process:

Srivari Kalyanotsavam is performed to the Utsava Murti – Lord Sri Malayappa swami (instead of the main deity) and his consorts Sridevi and Bhudevi. A purohit conducts the marriage and an archaka is consecrated to perform other rituals on behalf of the bridegroom. The wedding ceremony is held according to Vaikhanasa Agama rituals and starts with the Panchamurthi Puja. This is followed by recitation of Vedic mantras and pronouncing the family pedigree of the brides and bridegroom. The idols of the Lord and his brides face each other with a tera (screen) in between them. After the priests perform appropriate homas, the bridegroom and the brides are allowed to see each other at the appropriate auspicious moment as the screen is removed. This is followed by Mangala sutra dharana, Talambralu and then Lord and his consorts are garlanded.

The practice of Kalyana utsavam started in 1536 AD when Tallapakam Tirumala Ayyangar got the idea of celebrating the marriage festival of Lord Malayappa swami and the ceremony was conducted over five days in the Tirumamani mandapam.

This Seva is not performed on important festivals like Srivari Brahmotsavam. Pavitrotsavam, Pushpayagam etc. and on the days of solar and lunar eclipses. The duration of the seva is about one hour.

Devotees should gather at Supadham

Tirupati Kalyanam Timings:

Kalyanotsavam Seva will be performed from 10:30 – 01:30 PM. Devotees should gather one hour before the Seva time at Supadham

    Can you please give me suggestion that how do I can postpone the Kalyanotsavam schedule until clear of “Soothakam” (Obit situation) or I may eligible to perform the Kalyanotsavam…?

    Your early reply is solicited.

    Mallepoola Krishna Murthy

    • Hi,
      You should not perform any rituals till Soothakam is completed. You can visit normal temples after 3 months, but major temples like Tirumala should be visited after 11 months only.
      There is no way to postpone your tickets. You need to try booking again once your soothakam is completed , please consult your pujari before deciding the next booking date.
