Hardly ten days left for the Maha Kumbabishegham at Manavur on 25.03.2012. Many of us have already decided to visit the shrine again on coming Sunday, 18.03.2012 to witness the Dwajasthamba Pradhishta and also to offer any possible assistance from our side to give a finishing touch before the GRAND FINALE.
Shri Arvind Prabhu hailing from Manavur presently at UK was earlier connected with the renovation work and the originator of the blog "thirunandeeswarar.blogspot.in". After seeing the photos uploaded by us here, he has conveyed his appreciation of our work thus: "We on behalf of Manavur village thank every individual, who have stepped up to help us in completing this pending work, which we are sure, would not have been complete, without such massive and dedicated participation".

In a separate message to this writer, he has penned: ".... very grateful to your team, I do not have words to express my thanks. Went through your blog, happy to see the temple brighter...I sincerely pray to almighty that you all be blessed for undertaking such a noble work. I will be in India on the 18th, but will not be in town. I hereby invite you all to participate in the kumbabishekam. Let us all together witness a 2000 year old temple, undergo kumbabishekam after approx. 250 years".
For many of us too, this will be a once in a life time opportunity to witness the Grand Occassion. Let us all gather in huge numbers to receive the Blessings of Lord Thirunandeeswarar.
