The following pictures are from the Hanuman Jayanti celebrations at our Panchamukha Hanuman temple in Chennai this year. In North India Hanuman Jayanti falls in April, but according to the Tamil calendar it falls in the months of December and January. This year it was in early January. Due to other work we are a little late posting these pictures, so we apologize for that.
In the morning maha abhishekam was conducted for the utsava vigraha, and in the afternoon yaagam was performed to please Lord Hanuman. In the evening the utsavar was taken out in procession throughout the neighbhorhood, accompanied by govinda nama sankirtanam. Throughout the day thousands of devotees visited and worshipped Lord Hanuman.
If you live in Chennai, we invite you to visit our temple located in Taramani, near to the back gate of IIT. Every evening there is sankirtanam, and there are classes on the Bhagavad Gita every Saturday and Sunday night. The temple is located at the following address: Sri Panchamukha Anjaneyar Siddhar Peetham, No. 28 Erikarai Street, Taramani, Chennai. If you have any questions or need directions you can contact us by phone: 8300181008.
