About Ist Navaratri Kanya Kolam:

Today in Trivandrum, Kumaraswami, Saraswathi Amman and Munnutti Mangai have reached. From tommorrow the navaratri celebrations will start in Trivandrum. There will be Kacheri in Navaratri Mandapam in Padmanabha Swami Temple the coming nine days. These nine days there are nine kritis of Shri Swathi Thirunal Maharaja which will be sung by famous musicians in the kacheri's to follow from tommorrow. This will be telecast by Trivandrum AIR (All India Radio) during the night. All three Gods come from Nagercoil to Trivandrum. These nine days they will be in three temples in Trivandrum and on the 10th day they will return. This is being done for years and years. Full of celebration. I put this kolam as the invitation to these Gods to Trivandrum. Hope you will like the border . This is same kolam only with a small border different.

Very beautifully made kanya kolam, Priya. Cute border designs. and it is interesting to read the write up about the navarathri celebrations in TVM. My father's native is also TVM. Their house is in 1st Putham theru, which is very close to Padmanabha Swami koil.
