The 45-minute long Harathi will start at 5.30 pm and concludes at 6.15 pm. Rudrayagam will be performed in the morning on the same day and cultural programmes including Perini dance will be organised in the evening
With a view to spread the importance of River Godavari among the public, Godavari Maha Harathi Utsava Committee has been organising Maha Harathi programme for the past three years.
Instead of dropping coins made with mixed materials, the Committee decided to distribute copper coins to the devotees as copper has the power to purify water.
Though they have planned to distribute coins to all the devotees who participate in Maha Harathi, but it was not materialised due to various reasons. Not coins would be distributed to only a few important people, he said.
