Mother goddess showed herself in Pushkarini known by the name of Padmasarovaram inside a golden lotus as per traditions. According to Venkatachala Mahatyam, it is said that Lord Suryanarayana helped the lotus to bloom in its full glory and therefore there is a temple for Lord Suryanarayana towards the eastern end of Pushkarini. There is a detailed description by Padma Purana about how the goddess came into being and the later wedding to Lord Srinivasa. It was during the karthika month on Sukla Paksha Panchami that Sri Padmavathi Devi came into being as the Uttarashadha star was ascending. The occasion of Brahmotsavam of the devi is conducted with full glory to mark her manifestation, which goes on for 10 days, attracting a lot of her devotees from long distances.
The highlight of Tiruchanoor Brahmotsavam is marked by the Panchami tirtham. The goddess is offered turmeric, silk saree, tulasi, and other materials which are sacred. These are brought from the Tirumala Temple along with a procession. Goddess Padmavathi Devi is given a sacred bath in a beautifully decorated mandapam that is built on Padma Sarovaram banks, along with Sri Sudarsana Chakra, with Vedic Chants. This Brahmotsavam for 10 days in the place of Tiruchanoor is witnessed by many devotees which is a spectacular thing to see and receive her blessings in abundance.
