About 40 priests, including the head priest of the temple, had escorted the murthis from Tirupati to Delhi during a two-day journey on a special bus. "Kalyana Mahotsavam puja is performed daily for about three hours in Tirupati. It is for the fourth time that such a ceremony has been organized in Delhi," said head priest Sri Sundaravaradevan.
"Traditionally, devotees go to seek blessings of the Lord but this time the Lord has come to bless his devotees. Actually, there are a lot of aged people who cannot make it to Tirupati so these murthis have been brought here," said R. V. Kavitha Prasad, Secretary, Hindu Dharma Prachara, of the Tirumala temple.
