Hindus worship a golden deity during the nine day Tirupati Temple Festival. The diety is taken out on colourful processions around the city with hundreds of people following it. People perform Sevas, meaning they offer flowers, fruits, and food to the diety in order to make their lord happy and seek blessings.
