Surya Prabhai : Day 4 M : Sri Parthasarathi Brahmothsavam - Thiruvallikkeni

27th April 2013 is day 4 of   Brahmothsavam of  Sri Parthasarathi Perumal at Thiruvallikkeni.

In the morning it was Surya Prabhai representing the Sun chariot pulled by 7 horses.   The radiance of Sun would sure get overshadowed by the brilliance of Perumal.  Centuries ago, Thiruvallikkeni was such a pleasant garden with dense vegetation that Thirumangai Azhwar  described it as ‘இரவியின் கதிர்கள் நுழைதல் செய்து அறியா திருவல்லிக்கேணி” ~ the Thiruvallikkeni where the grahanams of Suriyan have not ventured inside……

Today, it is a concrete jungle with so many flats, vehicles and over-crowded that there is not proper space for the Perumal purappadu – of course in tune with its older leanings, cattle still remain………….

Here are photos taken during the Morning  purappadu
