A riot of colours dotted the  joyful faces of  GSB brethren both young and old who immensely enjoyed the day. The devotees, young and old enjoyed the festival thoroughly, with a riot of colours dotting their gleeful faces.


Devotees danced as they sprayed colour water at each other as Lord Venkatramana and Goddess Padmavathi proceeded on the first journey of their wedded life. The annual car festival has a special significance to the Gowd Saraswat Brahmin (GSB) community  as it is a commemoration of the divine union of Lord Venkataramana and Goddess Padmavathi.
