Govindarajapuram Theru - 2015



A cloudy day it was… Several eyes looking at the sky and praying and deep within heart, prayers were mumbled. We sighed in relief when it didn’t rain in the morning.  However, clouds didn’t pass and dear Sun was nowhere in the picture.






As planned, we started the oorvalam of theru in the evening. A few droplets kissed earth.  We prayed more. Pulled the theru with more zeal.  Somehow we managed to reach back to the divine abode.



As soon as God was taken into the temple, it stated pouring like never before.  Lightning and thunder followed. All of us were smiling.
 
Varadaraja Permal-kku Jai!!!!!

  2. Learn this is an old temple and maintained well.The temple festival is unique in the sense it is a participatory festival where all mingle in trusting faith to make the festival a success.

    1. Actually Rudra... I was supposed to schedule for a later date. You see, I schedule my posts in advance! But I mistakenly posted it real time. Later reverted. You will see it soon! Apologies for the confusions :(
