TIRUMALARAYA MANDAPAM

Ten feet to the south of the flag staff, there is another stone pillared pavilion called Tirumalaraya Mandapam. This was built by Saluvanarasimharayalu, the emperor of Vijayanagara, to express his gratitude to the Lord for his help in his victories. Every year, for fiv days, in the month of June and July, the Lord and his two consorts are placed on a rocking cradle in this mandapam. This ritual which used to enthrall the devotees is now discontinued.
