Lakshadeepam at Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple

Feast of light - the phrase may seem a bit cliched to you. But when you get a glimpse of the grand Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple at Thiruvananthapuram when the majestic structure gets decked out with one hundred thousand lights (lakshadeepam), you will feel renewed. This event of decorating the temple with lights is held once in six years as the culminating ritual of Murajapam, a 56 day- long chanting of sacred verses. On this day, the images of Lord Padmanabha, Lord Narasimha and Lord Krishna are taken out on Garudavahana (the mythological eagle which is the vehicle of Lord Vishnu) in a grand procession.
