Maha Kumbhabhishekham Celebration

Vigraha Pratishta&Prathama Jeernodharana
Invocation of new Deities&first reinvocation of old Deities)
( May 13th to May 18th-2017)

 According to Aagama Sastras, once in every 12 years temple is  renovated and all the vigrahas are reestablished  (punahapratista).During the Jeernoddhaarana (renovation  period), the divine presence of the Murtis (Deities) must be  transferred to the holy waters contained in the Kalaasas.  Pooja is done to these Kalaasaas and Ustava deities (bronze  Deities taken out in processions). The kalasaas remain in a  miniature structure known as Balaalayam. Baala means mini  and "Aalaya‟ means Temple or structure" in Sanskrit.  During this time the devotees will not be able to see or do  poojas to the stone sculpted Moola Vigrahas (Deities). The  scheduled poojas will be done only to Utsava Murtis. The divine presence of the Lord will remain here until it is  transferred back to the Moola Vigrahas at Kumbhabhishekam.. Scheduled Poojas to  Moola Vigrahas will start only on the Mahaa Kumbhaabhishekam day.
