Sri Lanka: Sirisena in Tirupati

Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena attended the special pooja at the hill shrine of Lord Venkateswara near in Tirupati, India, a temple official said. Accompanied by his wife Jayanthi Pushpa Kumari and other family members and Lankan officials, Sirisena landed at Renigunta airport, 20 km from here, at noon on Tuesday. Amid tight security, he reached the hills by road, the official told the news agencies.

The president has taken a part in the 'Suprabhatha' ritual (recitation of Sanskrit hymns by priests to wake the Lord) and offer prayers to the presiding deity of Lord Venkateswara in the early hours Wednesday, the official added.
