Telangana,13 June, 2016 Chilukuri Balaji temple, located 30 kms away from Hyderabad, distributed two saplings each to all devotees as a prasadam on Sunday. This event was to mark the first anniversary of Telangana state sponsored “Haritha Haaram” project which aims to increase the forest area and greenery from present 24% to 33%.

Jyothi, a devotee of lord Venkateshwara, donated 500 saplings and they were placed at “Dwaja sthambam”. The priests of the temple after performing puja to these saplings, handed over 2 saplings each to the visiting devotees and they were asked to do two roundups ( Pradakshana) by holding them on top of the head.
The temple authorities say they conducted this ritual to bring awareness in the people on the importance of planting trees.
