Sri Ratu Peranda Visits Arunachaleswarar Temple

At the beginning of this month a group of 32 visitors from Indonesia spent about a week at Arunachala. The leader of the group was Ratu Peranda, Head of Hinduism in Indonesia. Many of those accompanying Ratu Peranda on his visit to Arunachala were coming here for the first time.

Soma Temple (creator of Aum Rudraksha Designs) and a devotee of Ratu Peranda and organisor for their visit got in touch with us here at Arunachala Grace for help in organising a trip to the Big Temple. That visit occurred on December 7th and included two beautiful abhishekams at the major Shrines of Arunachaleswarar Temple.

After the puja at the Shrine of Unnamulai, a senior Priest from the Temple adorned Ratu Peranda with a beautiful shawl and presented him with a laminated photograph of Arunachaleswarar Temple. All other members of the group were also presented individual prasadam packages from the Temple.
