Sri Azhagiya Singar Garuda Sevai 2015

The third day of  Brahmothsavam is of special significance ~ it is Garuda Vahanam for Perumal.  Garuda is depicted as having the golden body of a strong person, has a white face, wings,  prominent beak, wears a crown – massive, strong – and more than anything else – ever devoted to Sriman Narayanan, carrying Him on his shoulders all the time. His devotion and being close to Emperuman all the time – Garuda, is admired as ‘Periya Thiruvadi’.

This morning [28th June 2015]  @ 0530 am hundreds waited to have glimpse of Lord as he came out of the Western gate sitting on Garuda.  Then there was the decorative ‘aesal’ at Thulasinga Perumal Kovil Street.  On this day, people from far and wide come to the temple, offer vasthram, place before Lord cocoanut, fruits & other offerings and have darshan of Lord in Garuda vahanam.

Here are some photos taken this morning.
