Krishna’s gopi vastrapaharan has been described in earlier blogs. Today, I witnessed Lord Kothandramar in Punnai mara vaahanam. Local devotees explained that this vahanam is to highlight the vastrapaharan episode and the related philosophical concepts.
6th day of the Kothandaramar temple festival, West Mambalam.
