Thiru ther at Parthasarathy temple

Devotees gathered in large numbers to pull the chariot as part of the Brahmotsavam in Sri Parthasarathy temple at Triplicane in the city today. People had gathered from various parts of Tamilnadu to offer their prayers to the almighty today. The processional deities of the Almighty were decked up and taken out on rounds this morning in a huge chariot.

The Temple is an 8th-century Hindu Vaishnavite temple dedicated to the Lord Vishnu. The temple is glorified in the Divya Prabandha, the early medieval Tamil literature canon of the Alvar saints from the 6th–9th centuries CE and is classified as among the 108 Divya Desams dedicated to Vishnu. The name 'Parthasarathy', in Tamil, means the 'charioteer of Arjuna', referring to Krishna's role as a charioteer to Arjuna in the epic Mahabaratha. It was originally built by the Pallavas in the 8th century by king Narasimhavarman.
