GURUPAVANAPURA

 
FESTIVALS 

Many festivals are celebrated with much fanfare every year. As numerous types of pujas are offered to the deity every day, the temple wears festive appearance always. To be true, every day is a special day, and so every second is visits-worthy. Hence the unending influx of pilgrims in all seasons. On festival days, it becomes extremely impossible to step into the courtyard even. 

Among the festivals celebrated, special mention must be made of Vaisakh and Mandalam. The Mandalam Puja lasts for 41 days, beginning with Karthikai month. During these days, brahmins are fed sumptuously by the rich. Panchagavaya abhisekam is offered every day. And then special thirtham is distributed, which the devotees consider it lucky to get it. So they pay visits on these days and stay for days. In this mandala puja, Ekadasi mahotsavam is celebrated on a grand scale. As it is on the Ekadasi day, Bhagawan Krishna gave Gitopadesam, to Arjuna; and so is held very sacred. Processions and illuminations make the entire township appear Bhuloka Swarga, and the Srikoil, Vaikuntam, when all the lights 'Chittu' and deepasthambha, are lighted up. This special Utsavam begins quite earlier than Ekadasi, and., for a fortnight, grand processions with richly, caparisoned elephants and drummers, go on and heighten the charm of the Utsavam.
