People witnessing Mahakumbabhishekam at Padaleeswarar temple in Thirupadiripuliyur on Wednesday

CUDDALORE: 

          A large number of devotees drawn from various places descended on Cuddalore to witness the Mahakumbabhishekam performed at renowned Sri Padaleeswarar Temple at Thirupadiripuliyur here on Wednesday.

         The rituals that started at 5 a.m. by savants led by T.K. Balamani Sivachariar of Thirukannangudi culminated in Mahakumbabhishekam at about 9.30 a.m. A music band from Isha Yoga Centre gave an enthralling performance just before the main event that whipped up spiritual fervour among the devotees.The accompanying commentaryover the public address system also riveted the attention of the gathering. A helicopter, hired by a private company, hovered over the temple and showered flower petals on the gopurams to the delight of the gathering.

        As the turnout was so huge, the organisers had requisitioned the services of the fire service personnel to spray the holy water on them through the multi-chute fire tenders at low speed. Many philanthropists and service organizations had put up make-shift stalls to dispense water and buttermilk to the visitors. The entire Cuddalore town wore a festive look on account of the Mahakumbabhishekam and the Republic Day celebrations. The Padaleeswarar Temple Worshippers' Association had also incorporated a new chute to drain the milk poured over the Nandi during Pradhosham time. The Association had also put up many brass stands for placing the lighted earthen lamps so as to prevent any oil spill or stains on the temple walls.

             The Mahakumbabhishekam was performed after a gap of about 14 years at a cost of Rs 1.25 crore and a lion's share of it had come from the members of the Association. The Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowment Department had spent less than Rs 9 lakh on the renovation of the Raja gopuram. In the evening Thiru Kalyanam was performed and the deities were taken in a procession on silver Rishaba vahanam. The temple is categorised as first grade one with an annual collection from the hundis amounting to Rs 40 lakh, according to HR & CE Department sources.
