Vernal Equinox - Thiruvallikkeni

திருக்கோவிலின் கோபுரத்தின் உள்ளே கதிரவனின் கதிர்கள்

A solar equinox is a moment in time when the Sun crosses the Earth's equator, which is to say, appears directly above the equator, rather than north or south of the equator. Systematically observing the sunrise, people discovered that it occurs between two extreme locations at the horizon and eventually noted the midpoint between the two. Later it was realized that this happens on a day when the duration of the day and the night are practically equal and the word "equinox" comes from Latin aequus, meaning "equal", and nox, meaning "night".

The March equinox is the vernal equinox - the equinox on the Earth when the subsolar point appears to leave the Southern Hemisphere and cross the celestial equator, heading northward as seen from Earth

At Thiruvallikkeni during March closer to Equinox one can observe Sun set through the various levels of Gopuram.  During Ekadasi purappadu tried capturing this phenomenon and when I realized my folly, simply followed master photographer MAPs  (MA Parthasarathi)
