Tour Day and Copper Roofs

Our visitors today were too numerous to fit in a single photo, so this is the first half, gathered at Iraivan to hear the story of this one-of-a-kind sacred temple in the West.

Almost as many were sitting in Kadavul Temple for the morning puja.

The Tanaka team arrived early to add copper details to the Gurudeva Visions Exhibition Shrines, officially known as the Sivadarshana Vanam.

Ultimately, this copper roofing will turn the traditional and ineluctable green as it oxidizes. Their work today is important in controlling the moisture.

Later this month a team of Sivathondars will place five copper spires on each of the three roofs.
