Thousands witness Aanayoottu ceremony at Vadakkunnathan Temple in Thrissur

Aanayoottu (feeding of elephants) and the Ashtadravya Mahaganapathy homom ritual, meant for propitiating Lord Ganesha, were held at the Sree Vadakkunnathan Temple here on Tuesday under the auspices of the Vadakkunnathan Kshetra Kshema Samithi.

Around 60 elephants participated in the Aanayoottu. Thousands of devotees as well as elephant lovers, including women and children, thronged at the Thekkinkadu maidan to witness the ritual and to have a glimpse of the elephants.
