Thanks to Sri Gopalan for sharing Annabishekam photos from Mayilarangam, where Mahaperiyava stayed in 1950s!
Beautiful darshan of swami and ambal.
Is there any place that Mahaperiyava not visited?! Blessed are those people who witnessed those great moments.
Thennadudaya Sivane/Periyava Potri!
Tempted by the nice photos of Gangaikondacholapuram Annabhishekam published by you, I am proud to share photos of grand Annabhishekam done at our native village Mayilrangam on 24th at Sri Mangalambika sametha Sri Mayuranathaswamy temple. The village on the banks of Kollidam river is near Valadi in Tiruchi District.
Our village is very much blessed by Mahaperiava. I am told he stayed there at late Sri Muthuswamy Iyer’s house and performed puja for 10 days in 1956. He is also said to have consecrated the Pradosha Utsava Murthis in our temple in the 60s which are still preserved in the temple. Incidentally late Sri Muthuswamy Iyer’s family are the hereditary trustees of the temple and the temple activities are still being conducted in a grand manner by his grandsons S/Sri Mayuranathan, Natarajan, Krishnamurthy and Vaidyanathan. Sri Vaidyanathan (Vaithi) continues to stay in the village and plays a vital role in the temple activities.
I am again happy to share with you photos of the precious Pradosha Murthis blessed by Mahaperiava and Mahaperiava ‘s portrait displayed in the temple premises.
