Yesterday was Sravanam and hence took the pilgrimage by train to Kumbakonam. The train reached quite late and hence had to complete the morning duties in the waiting room of the railway station itself and then caught a bus to reach Oppiliappan temple. You might be aware that last month Sravanam got missed out by a few hours calculation in the almanac. The Sravana Deepam got lighted by 11 AM and then after the prasadam distribution started to Alangudi temple. Alangudi is famous Guru temple. There was a Perumal temple also nearby. After completing both came to Railway Station and waited for Uzhavan express at 9.45 PM to travel back to Chennai.
