The fifth day of the Kapaliswarar Temple Brahmotsavam witnesses the Rishabha Vahanam festival which begins late at night and ends at 6.00 am the next day. As Kapali enters the temple he does a spirited dance of which I can never have enough. The music is as always – For he’s a jolly good fellow and the English Note. I always weep with joy on seeing this though this time my wife was with me, keeping a beady eye on the proceedings. She considers weeping unmanly!
So here are a few photos. You can click on each photo to see my comments and also a close-up of what has been photographed.
