Blessings of the goddess . . .

It was well past noon when temple priest Sekar, in a symbolic gesture handed over fruits and flowers to the officer of the Sri Kapali Temple, Kaveri to flag off the annual Panguni Festival at Mylapore.

About 100 devotees, mainly women took part in this ceremony at Kolavizhi Amman Temple, located north of Kutchery Road. It was a time to pray and receive the blessings of the grama devathai for the big fest.

Later tonight, Lord Vinayaka will be taken in procession after rituals to be performed inside the Kapali Temple.
