Today being Sunday, I just thought in the evening, I would have a trip to Padalathri divyadesam commonly known as Singaperumal Koil. I started around 4 PM and after a brief transit at Tambaram reached SP Koil around 5.45 pM. The temple had still effects of New Year preparations with crowd control barricades in place. The Utsavar moorthy was decorated in the mandapam of the temple.
After darshan of Lord (the three-eyed Lakshmi Narasimha), his consort (Sri Ahobilavalli Thayar), Sri Andal and other sanctum sanctorums started back around 6.40 PM to home.
Incidentally the start of New Year had a holy touch:
- December 31 Melmaruvathur
- January 1 Ayyappa Pooja @Thirumullaivoyal
- January 2 Pozhichalur Shani Temple
- January 3 SP Koil
