Sri Ayyappan Temple Samprokshanam
Whilst casually browsing through today's Tambaram edition of 'The Hindu' DownTown, I learnt about the consecration and Ashtabandhana Maha Kumbabishekam of Sri Dharma Sastha Trust's Ayyappan temple in Shankar Nagar, Pammal. The temple houses the deities of Ayyappan, Kannimoola Ganapathy, Bhana Lingam, Ashtabuja Durga and 'nava grahas'. The temple has been built on a plot of land measuring 9600 square feet mostly from the contributions of philanthropists and the general public.
The Maha Kumbabhishekam would be conducted on July 12, 2008 (Saturday) between 0530 hours and 0600 hours in the presence of Raman Namboodhiri (former MelSanthi of Sabarimala). The related poojas and utsavams would be performed from July 7 to July 15.
The Dharma Sastha Trust also appeals to devotees to take part in the Kumbabhishekam and contribute to the same. The organizers and Trust members can be contacted on +919444444238 and +919840309893.
