A glittering Sri Madhava Perumal decked with beautiful jewellery strode out at 5.30am on Monday morning through the paramapada vasal.
Alankaram specialist, the young Ashwin Bhattar had made this special decoration of the Lord for this occasion.
A temple official told Mylapore Times that there was a large number of devotees that packed the entire temple complex early on Monday. Puliyotharai prasadam was distributed through the morning to the devotees.
Madhava Perumal went on a street procession after the opening of the paramapada vaasal.
Devotees continued to throng the temple in a steady stream through the morning to have darshan and to pass through the ‘gateway to heaven’.
