PEARLAND:A beautiful crisp and bright sunny day marked the beginning of the Mahakumbhabhishekam of the Main Temple (MTK 2015) of Sri Meenakshi Temple on Sunday, November 22.

Sri. Thanga Bhattar, is the first official priest of the temple and he presided over the First MahaKumbhabhishekam of the Main temple in 1982. It was fortunate he was present now to preside over the opening day at Ganapathy Homam. Our eminent priests did a wonderful job with Homam and Abhishekam.

The newly made Teak wood doors with 12 Shodasa Ganesha made meticulously in the panels of the door in Karaikudi, India and were brought from India. Our priests ceremoniously opened the doors for the dharshan of Prasanna Ganapthy. The priests went in a procession to the main temple to get anugnai from Sri Meenakshi, Sundareswara and Venkateswara.
