Vaikunda Ekadasi festival begins 

By Our Special Correspondent 

TIRUCHI, DEC. 9. The Annual Vaikunda Ekadasi Festival at the Sri 
Ranganathaswami temple at Srirangam commenced today with ``Arayar Sevai'' at 
the Arjunan mandapam by Sri Nathamuni Arayar. As a prelude to the festival, 
Thirunedunthandagam was performed at Santhanu mandapam opposite to the 
sanctum sanctorum by Sri Lakshminarayana Arayar last night. 

There was heavy police bandobust at the temple to prevent any untoward 

Vehicular traffic was diverted through the Amma Mandapam road, due to the 
construction of the railway overbridge at Gandhi Road.
