Teppotsavam in Tiruchanur
The annual Teppotsavams in Sri Padmavathi Ammavari temple at Tiruchanur will be observed from May 31st 2023 to June 4th 2023. Timings will be from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM.
Teppotsavam in Tiruchanur starts from Ekadasi, five days before the Poornima during the month of Jyeshta. The five day festival is a delight to watch and is attended by thousands of devotees. The sacred idols are taken on the boat (float), well-decorated. The float turns out to be a divine setting with stunning floral decoration and serial lighting to peek out against the blue sky background.
- Lord Sri Krishna with His consorts is taken in procession on the float on the first day. Lord Sundararajaswami enjoys the float festival on the second day. From day 3 to 5, it is the turn of Goddess Sri Padmavathi Devi who enjoys the grand festival. She is decorated with splendid ornaments and beautiful flowers.
- From day 3 to 5, Snapana Tirumanjanam will be conducted to Goddess Sri Padmavathi Devi from 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM.
- On June 3rd Gaja Vahanam at 8 PM.
- On June 4th Garuda vahanam at 8 PM.
The float festival is conducted by TTD with Vedic chanting and recital of Sri Annamacharya’s songs. Harathi is offered at different stages of the float going round the Padma Sarovar—the sacred tank of Sri Padmavati Devi.
We are suffering a lot in the world which is called Samsara-sagar. If one witnesses the Float festival of Sri Padmavathi Devi, one is sure to be released from the samsara bondage.
Due to Teppotsavam in tiruchanur, TTD has cancelled Arjita Kalyanotsavam and Unjal Sevas during these five days.
