Golden Bhadra-lingam

The bali-peedam is a neighbour of the kodi-maram in temples.
There is a large one at Sri Kapali Temple too, on the western side.
Now, a donor has arranged for the entire peedam to be gold cast on copper sheets.
At the kodietram ceremony on Wednesday morning, the golden peedam shone in the morning sunshine.
Both, the peedam and kodi-maram have now been protected by cast iron railings.
