Thiruvallikkeni Sri Varadha Rajar Thavanothsavam 2014

Today, 18th Mar 2014 is Thavana Uthsavam for Sri Varadharajar.  

I had posted earlier about the 5 day Thavanothsvam whence Sri Parthasarathi had purappadu to Thavana Uthsava bungalow and had rest under the roof made of dhavanam  (தவனம்) [Artemisia pallens] – an aromatic herb.   

Today it was Sri Varadharaja Perumal.  Here is a photo taken by my friend during the morning purappadu and some more taken during evening purappadu by me…   The black garland that adorns Devathi Rajar is a root called ‘Kuruvi ver’ - 

Adiyen Srinivasa dhasan.
