Kumbabishegam of Agasteeswarar Temple in Orikkai Completed

It is a great pleasure for me to reproduce the email I got from Prabhu Mahalingam regarding the completion of the temple kumbabishekam.

I can only appreciate Prabhu’s patience, determination and strong faith in Periyava and Parameswaran (they aren’t different!) in successfully completing this project…

I have enclosed the old photo of how this temple looked and the new photos as well – how beautifully it looks now! It would give a great sense of satisfaction to all who involved to see the end result. Great job Prabhu & team!

May Lord Agatheeswarar bless all who were involved in this great project with health, wealth and all the prosperity.

I thank all readers who contributed to this effort and part of this great shiva kainkaryam.

All who are visiting Kanchi Matham and Orikkai should visit this temple to get the blessings of Lord Agateeswarar.

Om Nama Shivaya!
