Brahadeeswara Sivan

Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Sankara,

First let Adiyen express my immense happiness on the support showed by Sri Periyava Bhakthas for our appeal on this Maha Kshethram Kumabishkeam posted a few days back. Thanks, gratitude, etc. are probably not the right words betweeen Periyava Aathma Bandhus; one is thing is for sure, one gets immense satisfaction and fulfillment when we all come together without any expectations for a great cause such as this. Shri S Ravisankar, our Sri Matam Annabisheka committee member has provided the latest update below along with pictures and news paper clipping on where we are with this temple’s Maha Kumbabhishekam.
