The below photographs are of the Mahakumbhabhishekam ceremony which was performed at Arunachaleswarar Temple on Monday, February 6, 2017. I will be posting a full narrative of this great Festival (with additional photographs on my website next month) which lasted from Thursday January 26 to Tuesday February 7, 2017. But for now some photographs below.
