Makar Sankranti is on Saturday 14th January and South India’s famous Pongal festival is starting on Sunday 15th January. Under such circumstances, devotees thronged the Padmanabhaswamy temple for darshan on this auspicious occasion, which was also attended by high-profile cricketers of the country.
Indian cricketers were seen in traditional style
During this period the players of Team India appeared in traditional style. All the players wore Kerala’s famous mundu (a type of dhoti) and a cloth tied around the waist. It is famous as a traditional dress for men in Kerala. The Indian players also posed for a picture with the priests after visiting and blessing the temple.
