PONDICHERRY, MAY 31. Thousands of devotees thronged the Saradambal temple in the Sringeri Shivanganga Mutt (Pondicherry branch) at Ellaipillaichavady near here today for the ashtabandhana mahakumabishekam.

Sri Satchidananda Bharathi Swamigal of the Sringeri Shivaganga Mutt performed the abishekam at all the `sannadhis' of the temple. Devotees made a beeline to the temple from early morning to worship at the sanctum sanctorum.

The Shivaganga Mutt of Sringeri established its branch at Ellaipillaichavady near here in 1918. The 14th peetathipathi of the Math, Sri Sachithananda Abhinava Subramanya Bharathi Swamigal, was instrumental in setting up the temple dedicated to Saradambal along with several other shrines.
