The Sri Maha Kaliamman Temple kumbhabhishegam took place on 10 September 2010 which I agreed to sponsor. 

A Maha Kumbhabhishekam is held either to formally consecrate a new Temple or reconsecrate an old one, which usually occurs at twelve-year intervals, following renovation, extensive cleaning and renewal. 


The rites culminate with the priests' pouring sanctified water over the temple spires, each of which resembles an inverted pot, or kumbha. Leading up to the consecration, a number of rituals are performed by the sthapati (main temple architect) in charge of the construction or renovation. 


This is an elaborate process that involves a sequence of religious procedures culminating in the Maha Kumbhabhishekam. Kumbha in this context refers to the crown or the topmost structure of a temple resembling a pot. Abhisheka refers to the ritual bathing or consecration.
