We had a powerful Vaikasi Vishakam Muruga puja today early this morning in Kadavul temple. Lord Muruga's beauteous presence and powerful shakti blessed us all. Senthilnathaswami is the lead pujari today with Sadhaka Nandinatha assisting inside the shrine and a team of 5 more monks working behind the scenes to support the puja.
