    It was nice to know all about the Thirukalyanam in Madurai. Sitting so far away, one could still feel the thrill of it all after reading your post.
    The picture was so beautiful and I feel lucky to have seen it on this day.

    Dear Chithra

    That was great explanation about Meenakshi Thirukalyanam. The picture looks very divine. I think you have a great collection of pictures and that too very rare ones.

    Thank you chithra for this post.

    love

    dear Chith,
    Th story behind Thirukkalyanam was very intersting. I did not know it. You took us through the festive atmosphere of madurai by your flow of words. Are the items you mentioned still served every year. I think I should see the kalyanam at least once. Does the kalyanam takeplace inside the temple?
    Regards,
    Meenu
    Dear cheeniya,
    You reply to Chithra is very nice and apt.
    Regards,
    Meenu

    Dear Meenu,
    Thanks for the F B.
    Yes, the thirukalyanam is celebrated inside the temple in Kalyana Mandapam.
    Oh, Meenu, the spread is purely imaginary - a folklore iin Madurai !
    Join me & kb - we will go once & witness the same !
    Love,
    Chith.
