Kanchi Sri Varadaraja Perumal Koil Brahmotsavam: Simha Vahanam


As part of the ongoing Brahmotsavam at Sri Varadaraja Perumal Thirukkoil, Kanchipuram, utsavar Sri Devaperumal had purappadu on Simha vahanam yesterday evening May 22rd 2013 (Wednesday).

On the evening of the first day of Brahmotsavam, Perarulalan left the Kannadi Arai leaving the Ubaya Nachiyar’s behind with the Thalukku kondai, in the morning he wore the Venkatadri kondai during the Thanga Chaparam purappadu.

Kanchi Varadar Kovil is famous for so many things, like Perumal, Thayar, Kuzhal idli, Golden lizard, Silver lizard, Nammazhvar, Thirukkachi Nambigal, Ramanujar, Swami Desikan, Chakrathalvar……… the list Is endless. Kanchi Kodai is also one among the list as this is the widest Kodai. Every year Perarulalan gets new set of Kodai during the Brahmotsavam. This year also one devotee has done this kainkaryam.

This Kodai’s service for Perarulalan starts from his Purappadu in Simha Vahanam in the evening of the first day. There is no Kodai in the morning in Thanga Charpam as the charpam itself is the cover.
As Devadhirajan, is the king of all Devas aptly for him, he is majestically seated and comes around in the tallest of his Vahanas, Simha Vahana.
