Kulasekarapatnam or Kulasai Dasara!

26th Oct 2014

Delirious Dasara in Kulasekarapatnam, Tamilnadu.

Kulasekarapatnam in Thoothukudi district of Tamilnadu served as an important port city during the Chola period ages ago. 

Today Kulasai is famous for its unique way of celebrating Dasara in the temple of Sri Mutharamman. Lakes of devotees throng the temple painting their bodies in various avatars as an offering to the deity. 

It is a vibrant and colorful colourful confluence during the ten days. The energy, fervour and enthusiasm of the devotees will fascinate you. 

A once in a lifetime, MUST VISIT experience. 

How to reach: travel by train/bus to Torunelveli from where it is just an hour's drive. Or drive down to Tirunelveli through another iconic temple city Madurai.  Here are some clicks. I will upload the complete album soon.
