Devotees in large numbers thronged the tastefully decorated temple to witness the event on Wednesday night. Special prayers were organised on the occasion for world peace.

The Swamiji was weighed first with gold, silver, and other coins. Devotees also weighed the Swamiji with fruits, and flowers among other objects. Joint Collector P. Lakshminarasimhum and District Legal Services Authority secretary and senior civil judge G. Ramagopal were among those who took part in the religious event.
