In the Hindu cosmos, Sri Venkateshvara, or Tirupati Balaji is the supreme manifestation of Lord Vishnu's powers in the mortal realm. His devotees approach him as an active or Jaagrita devata, who is swift and benevolent in his actions. Accompanying Lord Balaji in this Tanjore painting, his twin consorts- Sridevi and Bhudevi are presented alongside his divine and sacred form, which is revered in the shrine at Tirumala. The upper section of the painting is graced by the presence of Hanuman and Garuda, both bowing down to the three Vaishnava symbols- Chakra, Tilaka, and Shankha, filling the canvas with a heavenly devotional feel.
