10th Day Deepam Murthis

Today I met with Bhaskaran a local photographer who is making a pictorial chronicle of this year's Karthigai Deepam. The photographs I am now posting were taken by him and his photographer father Sethu. Hopefully in the course of the next few days I will be able to get more photographs of this year's Deepam including aerial shots of the resplendently lit Arunachaleswarar Temple, pictures of the crowd climbing Arunachala Hill and also the actual lighting of the Deepam flame. I haven't reduced the photographs before posting, so when you click them they will open up to their original enlarged size.

In the meantime the following:

Photographs of the murtis of the morning of the 10th day of Karthigai Festival. The first picture is of Sri Vinayaka.

The next photograph is of Arunachaleswarar and the Goddess Unnamulai.
The third photograph is of the Goddess Ambal.
