In the Garbalayam (ANANDANILAYAM) of TIRUMALA TIRUPATI there are four more idols apart from main deity. I would like to publish information about them in this post.
The main deity in the AnandaNilayam (Garbagriha) stands in a veerastana posture. It is called as DHRUVABERAM.This is the idol which we all see in the garbalayam. The idol stands majaestically to a height of 8 feet, in the centre of the sanctum directly beneath a golden gopuram called as ANANDA NILAYAM divya vimana. It is a swayambu .We can’t find Sridevi and Bhudevi beside him. Only because of his powers entire temple gets the power.MAKARAKANTI HARAM(chain) decorated to the main deity is decorated to malayappa swamy on 5th day of Brahmaosthavam i.e on the day of GARUDA SEVA .Devotees believe it is good if the sun rays falling on this haram(chain) made of diamonds and rubies reflect on them .
