  1. The photos and videos are really fantastic. Though I am a resident of Kanchi, I was away on the day of Kulasekhara Azhwar’s Thirunakshatram. But the spate of photographs of the Divya Dampathi and the Azhwar, have really made me feel that I was also part of the festival. Thanks for the good work.


  2. Kudos to Elangadu swami for the good photos uploaded immediately. That day was great indeed ! First we had Perumal and ubhayanachimars come in purappadu on Sannidhi Street. On their return Thayar clad in brick color silk with black double plated border in sarvalankaram joined Him at the temple entrance. They came upto the dwajasthambam and witnessed the beautiful fireworks. They moved alond Azhwar Tiruchutru to Ramanuja sannidhi where Kulasekharazhwar was waiting to receive them. Prabhanda and vedagosham filled the air and those present felt blessed by the triple bonanza-Perumal with Sri and Bhu, Perundevi Thayar and the king who became an azhwar namely Kulasekhara.
