Nanganallur Pancha Garuda Sevai

Nanganallur Pancha Garuda Sevai -Chellamal Vidhyalaya- 25.05.2008

Chennaities are very much blessed with the Five  perumals today. The first ever Pancha Garuda Sevai has been conducted in a grand manner at Nanganallur Chellamal Vidhyalaya. Its the sowbhagyam of the residents of Nanganallur living in surroundings of temples. Those who cannot visit Thirunangur 12 perumal Garuda Sevai and 22 Perumal at Kumbakonam/Tanjavur hence forth can visit in chennai itself.

Nanganallur Pancha Garuda Sevai

The folowing Temples Perumals are brought in procession to the venue.

  • Sri Lakshmi Narashima Navaneetha Krishnan Temple-Nanganallur
  • Sri Lakshmi Hayavadana Perumal Temple-Nanganallur
  • Sri Oppliyappan Pattabhisheka Ramar temple-Ram Nagr-Madipakkam
  • Sri Srinivasa Peruma; Temple-Keelkattalai-Nanganallur
  • Sri Kothanda Ramar Temple-Madipakkam

 Today morning i had started  at 8.30am from the Sri Lakshmi Hayavadana temple near by my home. 9.00am Perumal left the temple along with the Nadaswaram and vedic hyms. Madipakkam (Two Perumal) , Keelkattalai perumals went to Narashimhar Koil and from there all the Four Perumals and Hayagrevar Perumal from Nanganallur ,  by 10.15am entred the venue and the police protection restricted the entry for the pass holdres only who came with Perumals. All perumals are recived by garlanding them at entrance and they seated on the pre marked places o the mandapam infront of theGarudas. By this time crowd started gathering at venue and polce personal found struggling to control the crowd. As this is the first time all the five Garuda Sevai has been organaised it was found difficult in sensing the time.  

After all perumals seated on the mandapam, his holiness sri Andavan Swami has arrived and all the temples bhattaraks respected him. Later Sri Andavan Swami has blessed the crowed with this ashirvachanam and told the importance of Srimannarayana. All the perumals are beautifully decorated on respective Garuda vahanams and opened for public by 11.15am. 

A beautifully and well organised by all the Five temples committe – Pancha Garuda Seva Samithi for the first time and lets this seva continues in much more grand with the blessings of Srimannarayana.

  1. I like your picture

  2. Dear Ramesh – Thank you very much for the coverage you have made.

    PGSS thank all for the appreciation and the credit goes to all the Sripadam members of the temples and the support from the temple committees.

    With the blessings of Acharyas, adiyen with the team members had the bagyam of coordinating and leading the show.

    PGSS proposes to organise Pancha Garuda Seva every year and from the feed back we got, the number of participating temples are likely to increase.

    Also we propose to organise other functions like Navarathiri utsavam, Abanga mela during the year.

    We solicit all your guidance and support in making every function a successful one.

    Adiyen, on behalf of all who toiled for the function thank everyone for the appreciation.

    Dear Mr.Ramesh,

    The Pancha Garudasevai Photo album is wonderful. Eventhough I am not able to see dharsan directly, it is wonderful with your photo album. Your service is very useful on this occassion. Keept it up your service.



  6. Dear Swamin,

    The photos are very good compared to the ones they appeared earlier. However In one of the photos, the caption ‘Sri Ahobila mutt Jeer ‘appears to be incorrect as Sri Jeer Sway of Sri Ahobila Mutt is camping at Kancheepuram.
