The Grand Stage for Sita Rama Kalyanam at Bhadrachalam..

Bhadrachalam is all decked up for the Sri Rama Navami celebrations, transforming into a place of divine beauty. The festivities kicked off from Ugadi, marking the beginning of the Sri Rama Navami Brahmotsavams. The celebrations began with the traditional 'Utsavanga Snapanam' performed by the temple priests and administrators, setting the stage for the grandeur that is to follow.

Known as the Dakshina Ayodhya, Bhadrachalam is ready to welcome devotees to the Sri Rama Navami celebrations in full swing. The temple and its surroundings are adorned beautifully, welcoming the festivities with open arms. The highlight of the celebrations, the Sita Rama Kalyanam, is scheduled for the 17th of this month, followed by Sri Rama Pattabhishekam on the 18th. Preparations are in full gear for these events.

On Ugadi, special rituals were conducted, including a special Abhishekam for the deities, followed by adorning them with new clothes. Devotees visiting the temple were also treated to Ugadi Pachadi made from the sacred waters of the Godavari River. The evening saw the deities taken on a procession on the Kalpavriksha Vahanam, adding to the festive atmosphere.

The temple authorities are making all necessary arrangements for the Sita Rama Kalyanam, expecting a large turnout of devotees. Sector-wise arrangements are in place to facilitate the viewing of the Kalyanam, with around 2.5 lakh laddus prepared and 5 lakh pearl talambralu packets ready to be distributed among the devotees. The devotees will also be provided with cool drinking water, relaxation pandals, and free meals throughout the festival period, which runs from April 9 to April 23, with special arrangements made for the main events of Edurkolu, Sita Rama Kalyanam, and Pattabhishekam.

Tickets for the Kalyanam are available online, and direct sales are happening in various locations in Bhadrachalam. The temple executives have announced that the Governor is expected to attend the Pattabhishekam ceremony on the 18th. Additionally, the daily Kalyanams will be paused from April 9 to April 23 to focus on the Brahmotsavams.
