This afternoon we had a powerful Ganesha Chaturthi abhishekam in Kadavul temple. Here we see Maha Ganapati freshly oiled before the abhishekam begins.
Alankara deepams of several kinds were offered next.
All the monks chanted 108 names of Ganesha … a powerful moment.
The temple was packed including a number of Hindu families who live on Kauai.
This years small clay Ganesha’s are placed on the palanquin.
Senthilnathaswami was the chief priest for today’s puja and blesses the little Ganapatis.
Our silpis take the palanquin and everyone parades to the river.
Ganapati Bappa, Moriya!
