Kalyanam offers both yoga and kshema benefits; yoga refers to achieving your desires, while kshema refers to protecting what is already yours.
A Kalyana ceremony involves performing with the images of Sita Devi and Sri Rama as worship figures, conducting their marriage under purohit supervision, while archaea perform other rituals. It is thought to bring marital harmony and prosperity to its devotees.

TTD recently implemented an online system for Srivari Seva volunteer service to increase transparency and engage more pilgrims as volunteers. On Friday alone, AV Dharma Reddy, Executive Officer of TTD Endowments, answered phone calls from 35 pilgrims during a live phone-in program he hosted.
To book tickets for seva events, the TTD website allows users to log in. When logged in, users will see an available list of sevas as well as their availability; virtual servers may also be selected using the SVBC channel rather than attending directly.

This service is performed every month at TTD but may be temporarily postponed during primary celebrations such as Srivari Brahmotsavam, Pushpayagam Pavitrotsavam, or solar and lunar eclipses. Furthermore, only married couples may take part in this seva.
4. Select the number of tickets
TTD has made great strides towards decreasing queues and helping devotees get their darshan more efficiently, which has proven popular with people unable to spend long hours standing in line due to age, health issues, or work commitments. Furthermore, this seva has enabled temple staff to manage crowds more effectively.
The Rs 300 special entry darshan ticket has proven invaluable to those unable to stand in long queues for long hours at temples. It allows them to enter quickly and take a quick darshan of Lord Venkateswara without waiting in line, and it has proved especially helpful for elderly, sick, or mobility-impaired visitors.

At Kalyanotsavam, Lord Venkateswara marries his consorts, Sridevi and Bhudevi. The ceremony is overseen by a purohit who performs rituals such as homam, Mangala sutra dharana, and tahlambralu; then, each couple is awarded silk dupattas and blouse pieces as bhahumanams; two laddus are given out for free for attendance as gifts; for religious reasons, children under 12 aren’t permitted due to them getting distracted from what’s going on during these seva sessions and disrupting proceedings.
6. Select the time
Kalyanotsavam, or Lord Venkateswara’s daily service, takes place daily at Tirupati’s Kalyana Mandapam in Tirupati and forms part of Vaikhanasa Agama rituals, making it immensely popular with his devotees.
