Chennai: Sri Maha Sudarshana Jayanthi was celebrated Sunday night with great reverence at the Ashtalakshmi Temple (Mahalakshmi Temple) here at Besant Nagar.

The jayanthi drew a large number of devotees. The celebrations began with Sudarshana homam performed by the temple priests.

The highlight of the programme was the pushpanjali (shower of flowers) to the beautiful image of Sudarshana Alwar found in a separate shrine in the temple.

The huge idol was already well decorated with rows and rows of garlands. It was a sight for sore eyes when the baskets of different varieties of flowers and thulasi were showered on the huge deity.

The mountain of colourful flowers at the feet of Chakrathalwar added beauty to the already imposing image.
