Warangal, January 16
The famous Inavolu Mallanna Jatara is going on a grand scale. It was the oldest jatara, running for about 1,200 years.
The TRS government after coming to power, developed the Mallanna Jatara area and has been it conducting every year.
Devotees in large numbers from the State and neighbouring states are thronging the venue for the five-day Jatara. The rush is more on the last day with people flocking to fulfill their vows.
People presented separate ‘bonalu’ to Lord Mallikarjuna Swamy and Goddess Renuka Ellamma. The dances by Sivasattulu created a festive atmosphere.
The tiny village comes to life with hundreds of thousands of devotees erecting temporary tents around the temple to camp for a day or two before offering their prayers.
