Following the Abhishekam, Sri Srinivasa is adorned with a beautiful Melchat Vastra. This hand-woven regal garment is over 12 yards in length and is woven in accordance with scriptural guidelines.
The devotees participating in Vastra alankarana Seva hand over the garment to the temple priest and are allowed for a special post Abhishekam darshan of the Lord.
The offering of garments is one of the shodasa updacharas, 16 important offerings a devotee can make to the Lord, and confers the blessings and grace of Srinivasa upon the devotee, along with prosperity and spiritual and material wellbeing.

Special Instructions for Sponsorship Orders
Before each homam or puja is performed, a “sankalpa” is recited. When we are included in a sankalpa, we become spiritually connected to the power of the divine ceremony and receive its full benefits immediately, just as if we were physically present.
In the section before below, please enter the name of the primary person for whom the puja is being sponsored. Please list up to four additional names and nakshatras only. It is not necessary to list all family members’ names, as they will automatically receive blessings through the primary sponsor and ‘Saha Kutumbasya’.. If you know the primary sponsor’s nakshatra (Vedic birthstar), you may enter it below or use ‘Nakshatra Unknown’. If you don’t know the gotra, it’s fine to leave this blank.
- This Special puja will take place at Sri Srinivasa Saligrama Devasthanam in India.
- Blessed and energized prasadam will be mailed to you. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, please allow several weeks after the completion of the event for the prasadam to reach you. Thank you for your understanding.
