Thousands witness Theerthodbhava

While it was predicted that the Theerthodbhava would occur at 3.11, it was delayed by two minutes. Devotees who had been waiting at the ‘Punya Kola’ (holy pool) for the annual event from 2.30 am itself, immediately jumped into the pool to take a dip in the holy water, chanting ‘Jai Jai Matha, Cauvery Matha’ and ‘Govinda Govinda’.

With the Theerthodbhava and Dasara falling on the same day this year, it had seemed like the number of devotees at the Theerthodbhava had decreased. As the time for the Theerthodbhava neared thousands of devotees gathered at the Talacauvery, the birthplace of river Cauvery.  Immediately after the Theerthodbhava, they were seen filling the holy water into pots and bottles.
