    Vannakkam TTA: Wow. They allow picture taking? I thought the devasthanam would just take a few official ones for the souvenir booth.

    EM,

    They don't allow photos as far as I know but this was a "special event" where the abhishekam was photographed. It is fabulous to see Sri Balaji so clearly. This is hardly possible when visiting there in person! hahha..

    He is so beautiful mannAtha

    The one in post#3 is ISKCON BalaJi but i don't know about the one in the abhishek - that could be Tirumala Tirupati.

    hmm after researching a bit,, i can say thse r not orig Swami venkateshwara pics..
    the orig Swami has got Maa lakshmi on his right chest and he wears a necklace of Maa padmavati all the time..its not even taken off during Abhishekam..
    if u look closely both the things are not present in the pics..
    But none the less, if there is beauty in the world it lies in my swami,he is beautigul

    Om namo venkatesaya
