The next day after the ther was the Arupathumoovar (festival of 63 nayanmars or Saiva saints). A glimpse from the terrace of a friend's house!
Kolavizhi Amman, who joins the tribute to the saivaite saints!
Do you recognise this deity? (!!!) Tiruvalluvar with consort Vasuki! It is customary for the neighbourhood temples to join the procession during the Arupathumoovar festival. And yes, Tiruvalluvar has a temple and is worshiped in Mylapore. It is but natural for him to join the festivities!
