Pot Pongal Celebrations

On August 3rd, 2007, the month of Adi, the Pot Pongal celebrations took place at the Sri Narayani Peedam to give thanks for the abundance of blessing from Goddess Narayani and to pray for the well being of everyone.


 
 

 

The function started with a procession of about 300 women led by Mrs. Jothi Ammal, the mother of Sri Narayani Amma. The procession went around the village and ended at the road outside of the Peedam.
