Jaffna Nallur Temple Annual Grand festival (Photos)

Historically famous Nallur Kandan temple festival has started from today (08-08-2016). Yesterday the flag saree was brought to the temple and handed over to chief priest of the temple.

This has started today with hoisting the temple flag at 10:00 AM and the festival will be continued for the next 25 days. It should be noted that the Sengunthar community provides the flag to be hoisted in the temple every year.

As usual, the flag was brought from Senguthar community families in Kalviyangadu area at 8:30 AM after special prayers. First it was taken to Kalviyangadu Velmadam Murugan temple and from there it traveled in a small chariot to Nallur Kandan temple.
