Government of United AP offers Pattu Vastram (Silk Clothes) to the Lord Rama temple in Bhadrachalam everyone on the eve of Sri Rama Navami. Post the bifurcation, Bhadrachalam became a part of Telangana state.
Hence, There is dilemma on whether AP Government will continue the tradition. Clearing the air, AP Endowments Minister P Manikyala Rao declared Government will continue to offer pattu vastram to the Bhadrachalam Temple even if it is now in Telangana.
Other major decisions taken by the Endowments Ministry include Sri Kodandarama Swamy temple in Vontimitta mandal of Kadapa has been declared as the official venue for Sri Rama Navami celebrations. AP CM Chandrababu Naidu and his wife will offer pattu vastram and mutyala talambralu to Lord Ram and Goddess Sita at this temple which will be more like Bhadradri of AP from now onwards.
