Installation of Flag Post 10

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 24 May 2017 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

The devotees lift the wooden post with ropes and try to slide it into the pit and make it stand erect. The masons are ready with sand and gravel and cement to fix this, once it has been erected. The air was echoing with the name of the Lord- Cosmic Dancer :))
