SriValliPuttur Godadevi Kalyanotsavam

SriValliPuttur Godadevi Kalyanotsavam



Sri Venkateswara Swamy of Tirumala and Godadevi of Srivalliputtur have been linked up for Centuries. Godadevi is said to be an incarnation of Bhudevi, wife of Lord Maha Vishnu.
According to Historical Sources, Vishnu Chitta, a great devotee of Lord Vishnu, found a female baby in his (BASIL) 'Tulasi' garden. Overwhelmed with joy over what he regarded as a divine dispensation, he took the baby name, named her Godadevi and brought her up. The child's speaking faculty began with her lisping the word 'Ranganatha'. Intensely devoted to Sriranganatha of Srirangam, it Culminated to her marriage with the Lord.
The Lyrics she had sung extempore out of her devotion to Ranganatha are today Known as 'Tiruppavai'
