Sri Anantapadmanabhaswamy Temple, Adyar - 27/2/10

I sang yesterday at Sri Anantapadmanabhaswamy Temple,Adyar as part of the 16th BrahmOtsavam festival at the temple.

Each day during the BrahmOtsavam, a different alankAram is done to the deity and yesterday happened to be the TirukalyANa utsavam and oonjal utsavam.
















Earlier in the evening, during the TirukalyAnam deepArAdhanA, we were honored to have the Maharaja of Travancore,His Highness Maharaja Raja Ramaraja Sri Padmanabha Dasa Vanchipala Martanda Varma III [Uthradom Tirunal] at the temple. I was very fortunate to have got an opportunity to render the kriti bhOgindra sAyinam in the presence of His Highness during the deepArAdhanA.

Accompanists:

Sri.H.N.Bhaskar - Violin
Sri.Poongulam Subramanian-Mridangam
Sri.Anirudh Athreya-Kanjira
