Garuda Sevai at Thiruvallikkeni ~ from my archives

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’.
Perumal  has purappadu in Garuda Sevai on other occasions with Masi Magam, Gajendra Moksham,  Panguni Uthram being special.  Today browsing my archives for other reasons, found these 2 photos – found them to be impressive and hence posting here.
