[Updated :: 2011-08-21 11:12:45 Hours]

A pompous religious pageantry was held on early morning Sunday (21) at Nallur Kanthaswami Hindu Temple to mark the opening of its Thetku Vaasal (western entrance) built anew.

The gaily decorated effigy of Lord Skantha was taken round the ancient temple before it was brought in the new Gopuram (divine tower) amidst a shower of lotus petals thrown from the top the Gopuram as thousands of devotees cried “Aro Hara” in enormous devoutness.

The Kalas Abhishekam of the new Gopuram was also held on the same occasion.

Commander Security Forces - Jaffna (SF-J) Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe, Mayoress Jaffna Mrs. Y. Pathgunarasa, General Officer Commanding 51 Division Maj. Gen. Janaka Walgama and Colonel Ramesh Shanmuganathan of the Headquarters SF - J also joined the large crowd of Hindus and other visitors from the south to pay homage to the God Skantha.

These days this famous Hindu temple is conducting its annual celebrations which will end on the 30th August.
