This is one of the daily sevas in Tirumala, that is performed at Koluvu Mandapam which is located outside of the temple.
Sahasra means “1000”. As the name indicates 1000 Deepams are lit inside the place. The idols of Malayappa Swami, Sridevi and Bhudevi are put on a swing and Annamacharya ‘s sacred poems along with vedic hymns are chanted.
