PANGUNI PERUVIZHA / FESTIVAL – 2016 ( BRAHMOTSAVAM ) AT MYLAPORE SRI KAPALEESWARAR TEMPLE

22nd March 2016.
The 10 days Mylapore Sri Kapaleeswarar temple Brahmotsavam or Panguni Peru Vizha  used to held during Tamil Panguni month ( March – April ). This year the festival started on 13th March 2016 and ends on 24th March 2016. During this festival Urchavrs used to circumambulate in all 4 mada street and bless the devotees. Yesterday on the ninth day and called as Arupathu moovar Vizha.  Urchavar Sri Periyanayaki samedha Sri Kapaleeswarar in chariot came around the mada streets. Moovar urchava moorthams  in individual pallakku and other nayanmars were kept in a group facing Lord Shiva  carried around the mada streets.

It was an enjoyable sight and I went around all the four mada street swimming in the crowd.  This is the first time I am visiting to Mylaope Panguni Peruvizha after I shifted to Chennai  from Tuticorin. Free prasadam, food in stalls, sweets, Chocolates, cucumber, buttermilk, water are served by the donors to the devotees. This added more confusions to the crowd. The crowds are not regulated properly. Devotees are not keeping one direction ie left but, walked  in crisscross manner.
