Srirangam Kalpavriksham_31

On April 9, 2014; Vijaya Varusha Panguni Pusam, the 5th day of Namperumal’s Adhi Brahmotsavam. was celebrated. Namperumal was in Sesharayar Mandapam for the day and left in Karpagavriksha Vahanam at 6.30p.m.As He came on the Chitra Streets, it was a dazzling sight. The Karpagavriksham is a tree which is wish fulfilling. The vahanam is a beauty to behold. On a platform of gold resting on a turtle of gold is the tree of gold forming the first cover, below is sighted the golden face of a lion at the centre of the prabhai,and below this¬† were the five golden hoods of AdhiSeshan and then the tall crown of gold adorning NamPerumal and ornaments of gold reaching up to His feet. What a sight!If these headcovers were not enough there was an umbrella of gold and the two white umbrellas which was deftly used by a kainkaryapara to hold up a low lying wire from touching NamPerumal.So mesmerising was the sight we forgot to ask anything and could only fold our hands in Anjali.

The following are some of the photographs taken on the occasion…
