Alankara Priyo Vishnu
The Lord is decked with colourful fragrant flowers every day during Tomalaseva and other days of utsavams. Mostly flowers of different odours are used for the Lord.
The evening session of every Thursday is known as ‘Poolangi’ day. On that day, the Lord will not be adorned with jewels. His Naamam will be reduced to small breadth so that His beautiful eyes are seen in its full form.
The darshan the devotees get on this day is also called ‘Netra Darsanam’.
It is a belief that, the eyes of Lord will open on this day and He will see all the devotees on this day.
T.T. Devasthanam’s Garden
The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams has its own Horticulture department with a vast land ploughed for the gardens on the Northeast side of the temple leading to papavinasam Road.
They are growing different kinds of flowers to decorate the Lord every day and also on special utsavams.
Some donors will also send beautiful flowers to the Lord from various places. Not only the Lord, the whole temple is beautifully decorated with a variety of fruits and flowers on Festival days like Ugadi, Deepavali and Brahmotsavams.
On the evening of Every Thursday (Poolangi Seva) Five Big Baskets filled with flowers are taken from the ‘flowers room’ by Jeers and Ekangis followed by Tolappacharyas or their followers with Tulasi.
They go round the Dwajasthambham and enter the Sanctum Sanctorum. Then Variety of flowers will be adorned to the Lord. Looking very simple without precious stoned ornaments, the Lord (Moolavarlu) will be dressed only with flower garlands.
