Nallur Festival at Murugan Temple of North America

Nigel Siva sent us this announcement about the upcoming Ilankai Nallur Kathirkama Kanthan festival to be held on August 7th and 8th at the Murugan Temple of North America in Lanham, Maryland. Bodhinatha and Shanmuganathaswami will be attending this event, an annual pilgrimage they have both been making since 2004. The devotees of the temple are quite excited with this year's festival as they have a beautiful new chariot to take Lord Murugan around the temple. This Murugan temple is one of few in North American where devotees carry kavadi with spears. To see last year's 2008 Nallur Festival see the YouTube Nallur Festival Video
