Lord Govindaraja rode the lion in the morning on May 16th 2016 as part of the ongoing annual Brahmotsavams.
On the third day of the nine-day fete, the deity was taken on ‘Simha Vahanam’ around the temple precincts. Led by the elephants, horses and bulls forming part of the temple paraphernalia, the procession of the deity on the celestial carrier ‘Simha’ attracted the attention of one and all. ‘Stotra Vangmayam’ says the Lord appears as a fierce lion in the heart of the demons and it is hence, the Lord, depicted as personification of valour, is taken on the lion.
