I reached there around 7 in the morning, Oh God, the atmosphere was just divine with the morning sunshine slowly increasing its shine, the temple was drenched in homam smoke and parayanam. Samajam people were still busy completing the decoration (They have been working whole night). Even this early temple people were distributing sweet pongal which was piping hot. Then one by one the crowd started to gather and sun god also came to witness the celebrations (It was so HOT). Temple people were constantly distributing buttermilk, coffee and tender coconut water also.

Afternoon 12:30 there was a sumptuos Annadhanam, It was so tasty that i ate so much i couldn't move about. It was very fulfilling (Periyavas prasadam).

Evening, there was a vilakku poojai and few blessed souls got the oppurtunity to take Maha Periyava as a procession on their shoulders, What punyam these atmas should have done !!!

With this the celebrations for this year drew to a end,eagerly waiting for the next Jayanthi Celebration.
