Video of Fifth Night: 2015 Karthigai Deepam

The below short video was taken last night of Lord Arunachaleswarar and Goddess Parashakti leaving Arunachaleswarar Temple by the Thittivasal Gate on their way to the Alankaram Mandapam, where they will be mounted on their respective Vahanas. 

In the case of Lord Arunachaleswarar, his Vahana for the Fifth Night is the giant silver Rishaba. After the priests complete decorating the 5 Gods (panchamoorthies), the Gods give darshan to devotees in front of the Alankaram Mandapam, receive aarti and then are go on their processional route through the mada veedhis (permieter streets) of the Big Temple. The video shows the energy and devotional fervour of the devotees outside the Big Temple.
