Govindarajapuram Ayyappa Utsavam, Athirudram 1961

This rare photo was sent by +Kiran Sahasranaman. It was taken in the year 1961 when an Adhirudra Mahayagnam was conducted. All these Vedavithukkal were from Kalpathy and surrounding villages and none from anywhere as is being done now. So many scholars were available then in Kalpathy. !!
