World’s Largest Betel Leaf?

Potting Plants

On their recent pilgrimage to Kauai Aadheenam, the Ragade family had a chance to help in our sacred gardens. Anusha and Shreya had a fun time potting a variety plants. Many of these plants are being grown for Iraivan Temple's surrounding landscape.

Beautiful Bonsai

As many temple goers know, there are always two bonsai trees kept at the corners of the Kadavul temple tank. What many don't know is that these trees are the selfless work of Tandu Sivanathan, who has been a student of the ancient bonsai art for many years. Several days ago Tandu came by to swap the previous pair of trees for some new ones.
