Pomona’s Sri Ranganatha…

Pomona Sri Ranganatha

There’s a beautiful temple located at the outskirts of New York City. The temple is run by Sri Ahobila Mutt, and was started under the auspices of the 44th and 45th Srimad Azhagiyasingar. If you’re ever in the area, the temple is worth a visit (or even a separate trip of its own). The following are some pictures of the beautiful deities over the past two years.

The temple has many beautiful silver vahanams, and the brahmotsavam will be celebrated from June 26th through July 5th of this year. Last year’s festivities were wonderful, with live nadhaswaram accompaniment for the various utsavams. For details of this year’s brahmotsavam, as well as more pictures, please visit http://www.ranganatha.org/
