Thirunellai Car Festival 2011

This year's Car festival witnessed rain, just whenever the procession is ready. But the mood of Thirunellaites were not damped by the rain. The missing feature was chenda-melam before the theru. Click to see pictures of 8th Day (Kuthirayottam) & 9th Day (Theru) here .

2011 രാധോല്സവത്തിനു കൊടിയേറി കഴിഞ്ഞു. ഇനി ദിവസങ്ങള്‍ നീണ്ട ആഘോഷങ്ങളും കൂടിചേരലുകളും തിരുനെല്ലയില്‍ കാണാം. ഏപ്രില്‍  22 ഉം 23 ഉം മറക്കല്ലേ. രാധോല്സവം ഒരിക്കലും മറക്കാനാവാത്ത അനുഭവങ്ങള്‍ തരുമാറാകട്ടെ. Photo Courtesy: Facebook Group
