Deepam 2012 Sixth Night Silver Ratham

As its starts getting closer to November 27, 2012, the day of Mahadeepam, processions around the perimeter of Arunachaleswarar Temple are beginning to become more elaborate. On the evening of the sixth night of this year's Deepam Festival, it was the evening of the Silver Ratham. 

Even though there was a sprinkling of rain on the sixth evening, there was a surging crowd both in the Temple and on the concourse outside the Raja Gopuram.
