Significance & Importance of Anivara Asthanam:
The uniqueness of the festival is that the previous year's accounts of the srivari temple office are presented before the Lord Sri Venkateswara Swamy by the principal officers
and are taken back to signify that the Lord Malayappa Swamy finds the officers fit enough to hold at their respective offices. 
New books will also be presented at the feet of the Lord for recording finances of the next financial year. The entire process is called ASTHANAM which will be performed in the Sanctum Sanctorum near Bangaru Vakili in the presence of Processional Deities of Lord Malayappa Swamy and his two consorts from 7:00am to 9:00am on July 17, 2014(Thursday).

It is a remarkable spectacle for devotees that Sri Malayappa Swamy and his consorts will be decorated with rich flowers and adorned with ornaments and garlands.
