After paying floral tributes to Tarigonda Vengamamba at her Brindavan in Tirumala on the occasion of 194th Death Anniversary of the saint poetess on Sunday, EO told media persons, Vengamamba not only blessed her life in the service of Lord but also served the mankind by commencing Mass Free Annadanam at Tirumala and became “Divine Mother”, he added.
“So we have named our New Annadanam Complex after her as she pioneered the cause of free annadanam to visiting pilgrims to Tirumala”, the EO maintained. “TTD has also taken over the Nrisimha Swamy temple at Tarigonda village, the native place of Saint Poetess in Chittoor district and developed the temple also. Apart from this we have also constructed a Kalyana Mandapam in Tarigonda and organising spiritual programmes. It is a welcoming aspect to see that the popularity of the great saint poetess has been slowly spreading among the devotees also”, the EO said.
