Thiruvallikkeni Panguni Uthiram Garuda Sevai

Today [26th Mar 2013]  is Panguni Uthiram,  a very auspicious day.  The Pallava uthsavam concludes today.  During the Pallava uthsavam, ‘Brindharanya puranam’ is read in front of Sri Ranganathar.

In Srirangam, it is famous for ‘Serthi sevai’.  At Thiruvallikkeni divyadesam,  on the day of Panguni Uthiram, divine wedding of Sri Vedavalli Thayar and Sriman Ranganathar is performed.  

On this day, there is purappadu on Garuda vahanam. This extremely attractive ‘Garudan’ is  known as ‘kannadi Garudan’ – for the vahanam has glass pieces of art embedded on the structure.  Inside the Temple, Gadyathrayam of Sri Ramanuja is rendered.

Here are some photos taken during today's evening purappadu whence the Pournami moon provided the perfect backlight.
