TIRUMALA: Depicting the supremacy of Lord Malayappa Swamy as ‘controller of the worlds’, the deity along with His two Consorts Sridevi and Bhudevi was taken on a celestial ride on the ‘Sarvabhoopala Vahanam’ on the penultimate day of the annual Brahmotsavams of Lord Venkateswara here on Saturday.
The term ‘Sarvabhoopala’ means ‘Emperor of Entire Universe’. The vahana seva took place at Kalyanotsava Mandapam between 7 am and 8 am.
