Coming up and walking a short distance, we reach the Srivari Padala Mandap. It is a single Cell Mandir with provision for pradakshina. There lies in the rectangular spacious hall, a small chamber containing many images of the most adorable gods buffeting Balaji's image. Look! there is an oddity there that surprises a little. There are some big size pairs of leather and metal padukas of Balaji regarded as very sacred, and they confer merit, if carried on head round that small mandir. The priest sifter waving karpura harati to the worshipful deities, offers them to the intending bhaktas to make pradakshana of the chamber, collecting money. There is no specific fee for this seva, nor is it compulsion. It is left to the option of the ascending pilgrims, yet almost all orthodox devotees offer this ritualistic prayer service."

" A good opportunity for us, particularly to my parents. We wish all to perform this scared ritual too."
