Aradhana opens with Nadaswaram

As you enter Tiruvaiyaru town at 4.30 pm, the music of Nadaswaram floats in the air. The road leading to the samadhi of Thyagaraja is all decked up with thoranams on both sides and the loudspeakers transmits the music from the pandal to the streets.

At the pandal, Thirupambaram brothers, TKS Meenakshisundaram and TSN Seshagopalan  perform at a make-shift stage since the main stage facing the Saint's samadhi is arranged with chairs for the inaugural function.

The visitors are permitted to be seated inside the pandal after a security check. Already seated are around 200 people listening to the nadaswaram.

Many men in white have gathered to receive G.K. Vasan, union minister and a member of the Board of Trustees of the Thyagabrahma Mahotsava Sabha. G. Rangaswamy Moopanar, their 'chinna ayya, as he is fondly referred to, is also awaited at the pandal.
