Devotees throng the streets of Srirangam to participate in the car festival of Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple on the occasion of 'Thai Ther' festival on Friday.  

Devotees in large numbers drew the Srirangam Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple car carrying the processional deity Sri Nam Perumal and ‘Ubhaya Nachiyars’ on Friday as part of the ongoing ‘Thai Ther Thiruvizha’ celebration.

The ‘Thai Ther Thiruvizha’ began on January 30 with the hoisting of the holy flag. The highlight of the event is the drawing of the temple car. The deities were brought in a procession to the specially decorated temple car which was drawn by a large number of devotees around the four ‘Uthira Veedhis.’ The ‘Thai Thiruvizha’ concludes on Sunday.
