PranaPrathistapana
Shri Venkateshwara Perumal & Padmavathy Thaayar

It is our honour and pleasure to announce that we will soon have as the principal deity at this temple, the Moola Vigraham of Sri Venkateswara Perumal with Padmavathy Thayar, coming directly from Tirumala Tirupathi Devasthanam, India.

We are the first temple in Calgary to have Moola Murthy of Lord Venkateshwara (Balaji) from Tirupathi. This was possible through the good offices of Prasad Panda MLA from Calgary Edgemont and his contacts in the AP Government in India. We also owe our gratitude to the support from the devotees.

The Tirumala Tirupathi Devasthanam has kindly approved the supply of the idols free of cost as a goodwill gesture to the community of Calgary. We do however need to arrange for the Kavachams for the idols. the Prabhavali, the costs of transportation of the idols from India to Calgary and the installation costs of the idols.

We look forward to continued support from you in raising the funds estimated at C$45 K, that is required to cover these expenses. This is a unique and unparalleled opportunity for devotees to be involved in this momentous and historic undertaking in getting the Lord Sri Venkateswara here to shower his blessings on all of us.

If you would lite to contribute and be a part of this effort, pleast contact one of the Committee Members below for details of sponsorship.
