The Lagna Patrika ceremony


Traditions run deep at temple festivals. And they are human, natural too.
They are practices that we all follow in our ways, our lives.

And so on March 7, the public declaration of a symbolic wedding of the Kapali and Karpagambal of Mylapore was made. The lagna patrika ceremony.

Hundreds of devotees, mostly women attended this evening ceremony.

These two photos capture the mood of that evening.
