Positive Footprint

          

 

 

 

 

 

The pilgrim can set an example to fellow pilgrims by not littering the area, avoid buying bottled water, not eating inside temple premises and dropping the Prasad containers after emptying them in the bin.

 

 

The pilgrim can bring a metal basket or cloth bag to carry the puja materials instead of a plastic bag. The pilgrim may opt to walk or use public transport rather than driving on his own.

 

 

For centuries, several temples have the tradition of maintaining Nandavanam (flower garden) within the temple premises, around the temple pond and in temple lands. The Government of Tamilnadu distributes saplings through the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Department to plant and maintain gardens in the temple lands. They use the flowers for temple worship.

 

 

With the increasing number of pilgrims every day, the temple authorities have made an enormous plantation drive to restore the biodiversity of the hill ecosystem at Tirumala, and the carbon footprint is considerably reduced. Several hill temples in Tamilnadu have also taken adequate measures for plantation.

 

 

Cherished memories of the appealing temple traditions and blessings of the Almighty eventually ensured to go back with the pilgrims.
