Portraits of Angal Amman

@7:30 AM - Kaveripattinam, Dharmapuri District, Tami Nadu.

Occasion: Maha Shivarathri, Angal Amman Festival.

 

Most celebrated and spirited 'Shivarathri' festival in Dharmapuri District, Tamil Nadu. Thousands arrive here in Kaveripattinam, expressing their devotion. As a distinguished and highly spiritual part of Maha Shivarathri, people involve in the procession as a thanksgiving (venduthal) for 'Angal Amman'. The series of 'preparation and dedication' of hundreds of those, before the procession which the most crowded and powerful.

The only place where I saw "Angal Amman" in different colours, age and people.
