Jaffna Nallur Kandaswamy temple Manjam festival celebrated grandly (Photos)
The 10th day “Manjam festival” of Jaffna – Nallur Kandaswamy Annual Festival held on Wednesday in a very grand manner. Lord Muthukumaraswamy (Muruga) appeared in front of all devotees gathered in a beautiful manjam in the chariot designed as per ritual guidelines by sculptors.
This rally of Lord Muruga coming on the streets is also called “Vasanthothsavam (also called Vasantha Rathothsavam)”. Several universally important spiritual concepts are sculpted beautifully in this Manjam.
Many thousands of devotees gathered to see this Manjam festival on the day of Vasanthothsavam. Pictures are attached which show Arohara spritual saying of devotees while Lord Muruga comes in the chariot for visiting devotees in the streets.
