Tradandi Pontiff Offered Prayers at Tiruchanoor Temple

Tiruchanoor, 25 February 2021: The Tridandi pontiff Sri Sri Sri Tridandi Srimannarayana Ramanuja Jeeyar Swamy on Thursday evening offered prayers at the Goddess Sri Padmavati Temple, Tiruchanoor.


He was received with traditional temple honours by TTD chairman, AP minister Sri C Venugopal Krishna, TTD EO Dr KS Jawahar Reddy, additional EO Sri AV Dharma Reddy, and temple archakas.


The Tridandi pontiff took a pradakshina of the temple and Dwajasthambham before offering prayers to Goddess Padmavati and also visited the sub-temples of Sri Krishna and Sri Sundararaja Swami within the premises.


Thereafter the TTD Chairman and TTD EO presented thirtha Prasadam and Goddess portrait to the Pontiff.


Later speaking to the media the Pontiff called upon people to give up wayward living and take adequate precautions to save themselves and the society from pandemic Covid.


Contending that the pandemic had raised its hydra head again he urged people to compulsorily wear masks, observe social distancing and use sanitizers extensively.


The pontiff said in the backdrop of attacks on temples in AP he had visited some other temples in Rayalaseema whose sculptural heritage and divinity deserved patronage by TTD.


He said he had submitted a report on such temples to the TTD chairman for consideration of patronage.


TTD Trust board member Sri Jupalli Rameswaram Rao, Sri Shivkumar, Sri Venkata Bhaskar Rao, DyEO Smt Jhansi Rani and AEO Sri Subramaniam and others were present.
