Welcome to our navarathri golu 2022
This year we have set our theme as Bhakthi movement in South India to highlight the great acharyas and gurus who played an important role in spreading the concept of Bhakthi in South India.
We have associated each of the saints with a famous temple and also highlighted one of their important works.
Dividing the bhakti movement into two branches we have kept Vaikuntam to represent vaishnavites and Kailayam to represent Shivites.
Below, we can also see the union of both in Meenakshi kalyanam and the 3 Devis.
