The kumbhabhishekam of Thiruporur Sri Kandasamy temple was held on 11th September 2014 after renovation. Since we could not attend the same, we thought of  seeking  the blessings of Sri Kandaswamy before completion of mandala pooja.  From Madhyakailash we took the 19B ( Saidapet to Kelambakkam ) bus on 11th Oct 2014 and reached to the temple around 17.00 Hrs. After dharshan we  went to Thiruporur Chidambaram Swamykal jeeva samathi. We could not get the dharshan of jeeva Samadhi, since we were late by 10 minutes. ( Usually devotees are allowed up to 18.00 Hrs ). With a disappointment returned home. 

In one of my previous post up loaded some of the photos taken during renovation. The rajagopuram was completely painted and a new arch was also constructed near thirukulam. Outer parakaram and inner prakaram were completely paved with granite slabs.  
We had been to this temple once again on 26th March 2016 and the Photos taken are uploaded : Click Here

While returning from Sri Chidambaram Swamykal jeeva Samathi  we have crossed a Vishnu temple. This structure was standing in front of the temple  for the function, since the day happened to be a Puratasi  Saturday.
