> Dear Bhaktas,
> 	I have attended this ceremony along with my parents
when the Athi Varadarajar is taken out from the
> pushkarini and kept for 48 days. I was too young at
> that time..probably 2yrs.Still, i remember some
> things like the pushkarini being emptied to take the Athi
> Varadarajar who resides in a small case.
> This happened last in 1977. The perumal is taken out
of the pushkarini once in 40 years and
> Thiruvaradhanam
> is done for one mandalam before the athi varadarajar
> is kept back in the pushkarini.
> If you ever visit the Devaraja perumal koil in
> kanchi,
> you can see the small gopuram in the middle of the
> pushkarini, signifying the Athi Varadar.
> I have a photo of the Athi Varadar in the house.
