Pilgrims from Edmonton, Canada

Sivakumar Sivasamboo and his family, to include 30 wonderful devotees, pilgrimaged all the way from Edmonton, Canada. A beautifully dressed bright happy group, which included many young people, filled the Kadavul Temple to over-flowing this morning for the Siva puja. It is wonderful to have them here. Our guests are also here to help celebrate Ganesha Chathurti which will be held this afternoon with a grand celebration in the Kadavul Temple honoring Lord Ganesha. This will be followed by a pilgrimage down to the sacred Wailua River where all of the pilgrim's multiple hand-made Ganeshas (worshiped in home shrines for the past ten days) will be ceremoniously submerged back into the ALL.

Three of our guests rode in style on the people-mover with Isani Alahan, one of our local "Siva thondar's."

In front of the Sanctum Sanctorum of the Iraivan Temple.

Our guests also pilgrimaged to the sacred Narmada Lingam where they performed Abhishekam.

Each family took their turn performing this sacred rite, drawing water from the stream flowing beside the Narmada Lingam.
