This post follows a previous post (view here) about the history, significance and other information concerning this auspicious event.
Today was the big day which I attended at the Umgeni Road Temple (Sri Vaithianatha Easvarar Alayam) in Durban, South Africa.
It will take some time for me to select a few photos for the series to follow on this Kavady ceremony: I have 232 photos altogether!
So to introduce the big day I offer you the following:

Lovely photos!! 🙂
This is a traditional ceremony of the people of south India, where I am from… It is inspiring to see that the same tradition, perfect to the last detail, is maintained and followed by those of us who have settled so far away, in South Africa…
Thanks! I have some more photos that I will post starting tonight 🙂
Looking forward to seeing them!! 🙂
Another 2 posts with Kavady photos are ready to view

For sure. Watch this space – I have some more photos to post from the “big day”
