RSS Sarsanghchalak Dr. Mohan Bhagwat Ji visited Sri Padmanabha Swamy temple at 6.45 in the morning. He was received by Executive Officer B. Mahesh and Manager B. Sreekumar at the west gate of the temple. The workers of Karmachari Sangh were also present and they welcomed Mohan ji with Tulasimala and lotus flowers.
Sarsanghchalak Ji asked and understood the importance and special features of each shrine before visiting there. He spent half an hour inside the temple. While returning, Aswathi Thirunal Gauri Lakshmibai Thamburatti of the Travancore royal palace was waiting near the Tiruvambadi Krishna temple on the west to meet Bhagwat ji. Aswathi Thirunal Thampuratti gifted a book on the history of Sree Padmanabha Swamy temple. When Prant Pracharak S. Sudarshan pointed out that, the book was written by Sri Aswathi Thirunal herself, she corrected it and said ‘Bhagvan only wrote it with me’. She also mentioned that Sarsanghchalak had come to the Kowdiar palace earlier also.
When Ashwathi Thirunal mentioned that there is one more secret to tell without anyone else, Mohan Bhagwat replied, “Why not?” They both had a personal chat for three minutes.
Executive Officer B. Mahesh presented Dr. Bhagwat Ji with an ‘Onavillu’ while returning after the visit.
