Hanuman Jayanthi with Abhishekam & Decoration
Saturday, May 20, 11:30 AM
Sri Hanuman
Sri Somesvar's 15-foot statue of Sri Hanuman is receiving Abhishekam, decoration, and Puja for Hanuman Jayanthi on a Saturday this year! Join us for an extraordinary celebration outside at Hanuman Park. Thanks to Dr. Sarvesh and Dr. Gowri Sathiraju family from Charlotte, there will be a sponsored lunch after the Puja.

Hanuman is an incarnation of Lord Shiva, the son of the wind god Vayu, and the humble servant of Lord Rama. Hanuman is a representation of pure devotion, the embodiment of strength, and a hero of the great Indian epic, the Ramayana. His undying devotion made him such that he became free from all physical fatigue and limitations physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Join us for this remarkable event!
