GOLDEN SHAWLS AND A TEMPLE


A couple of months ago, our music group Gangamritham was felicitated at the Sai Baba Temple, after we sang there. We were honoured with ponnadais (golden shawls, literally). I was a little disappointed that we could not take a picture of us wearing them, then. But we got together a couple of days ago after a class, and posed with our shawls, asking an obliging passer-by to click. And here we are.

And this is a picture of our group at theArupadai Temple near Besant Nagar beach, where we sang in July. This temple is a fairly recent construction, and has six 'sannidhis', one each for the six famous temples (Arupadai veedu) of Lord Muruga.

I "discovered" this arupdai temple just last month while visiting a friend in the neighbourhood, and was quite taken in by its location and construction.

Its well spread out and very relaxing and refreshing isnt it?

wow, the golden shawls photo has come out really well...the obliging passerby seems to be a professional, or is it simply that u people are so lively normally?? Rare to see even teenagers wear such nice expressions these days. :)

Had visited that temple only once, the ambience is great.
The purple ponnadais look very grand - well deserved!

Were the shawls the products of a wave of hand by his holiness?!!!!
