February 16, 2015 Pradosham at Arunachaleswarar Temple

The photographs below are of Pradosham celebrated today at Arunachaleswarar Temple. Crowds were very large in spite of the building work currently going on. 

Work started recently on the refurbishment and renovation of Arunachaleswarar Temple with major focus on restoring the antiquity of the Temple by changing what was recently carried out; such as granite flooring at various spots in the complex. 

Apart from the restoration, work on all the nine Gopurams of the Temple will be repaired and re-plastered wherever required and thereafter painted. Currently several of the Gopurams are crisscrossed with bamboo scaffolding in order to facilitate this work. 

After all of the above work has been completed a grand Kumbhabhishekam will be held at Arunachaleswarar Temple.

Yes it was a very busy, well attended Pradosham. Special time so close to Mahashivaratri.
