The Collector also directed officials to concentrate on arrangement of choultries, supply of food and drinking water, sanitation, queue lines and traffic issues.
Brahmotsavam rituals and utsavas will be observed as per Agama traditions but inside the temple in Ekantam.
The priests also performed Snapana Thirumanjanam to Lord Malayappa Swamy and his two divine consorts Sridevi and Bhudevi.
