Last minute preparations are going on at Sri Kapali Temple, Mylapore for the Panguni fest which starts on April 1.
Executive officer of the temple D. Kaveri says, “The pandal and painting work is going on and is expected to be done on Saturday. We have been told by TANGEDCO that there will be no interruptions in the power supply during this festival. Drinking water will be provided inside the temple”.
Chennai Corporation has been asked to reset a section of the recently-relaid platform near Thangavel Nadar Stores on R. K. Mutt Road, Mylapore, to ease the movement of the big and small chariots.
Police will put out traffic diversion notices as well plans to restrict annadhanam to only some spots on the the mada streets.
Some senior citizens wondered if a special platform on a side of East Mada Street could be set up for them to watch the key processions in peace. Kaveri has said only the popular Thirukalyanam ceremony is being shows live on a big screen in Sannidhi Street.
