Meet the man who makes sacred umbrellas for Lord Venkateswara

Sun, Sep 24, 2017, 09:17 AM
For the last 13 years, N. Balaji has been showing his devotion towards Lord Venkateswara Swamy in a unique manner. He has been making sacred umbrellas for Lord Venkateswara in Tirupati for the last 13 years and offering the same to TTD ahead of Brahmotsavam. Balaji takes a minimum of one week time to finish a normal umbrella, but for intricating designs and carvings, he takes at least a month. The only handwork is made and there is no use of any machinery in this regard. The price of the umbrellas depends on the size and the nature of work involved into it.
