Rishabha vahanam procession at the annual ten-day Vaikasi utsavam festival at Velleeswarar Temple in Mylapore was a grand spectacle.
As it began to make its way from the temple after 9 p.m. on Thursday, June 9, the large gathering of people feasted their eyes on something new – the silver plated vahanam, created for this year with handsome donations.
The fest is being celebrated grandly after a break of two years due to the pandemic.
