Sri Parthasarathi Theppothsavam 2019 - day 1 - Neeratta Mandapam

Sri Parthasarathi Theppothsavam 2019 - day 1 - Neeratta Mandapam

At Thiruvallikkeni divaydesam - there is a small Neeratta mandapam, exactly opposite to Periya Thiruther.  Sri Andal during the Neeratta Uthsavam in Margazhi has thirumanjanam here Sri Parthasarathi Perumal too visits this mantap immediately after the first day  ‘theppam’[float] festival.

The annual float festival [Theppothsavam] is being celebrated at Thiruvallikkeni Divyadesam and I have posted about the day 1 festivity along with photos.  After the 5 rounds in the Theppam, Sri Parthasarathi had mandagappadi at the neeratta mandapam.

After the very short halt, Perumal has purappadu in siriya thiruther.   

adjacent to this mantap was the ‘yanai kottai’ housing the Temple elephant and a cluster of shops including some selling eversilverware.  During the recent samprokshanam in 2015, all these shops and other structures including the public convenience, which functioned at the ‘yanai kottai’ were also cleaned up, providing a direct view to the Temple façade  and the gopuram. 

Here are some photos taken when Sri Parthasarathi Emperuman halted at this mantap.
