I plan to see the kumbabishekam from one of the rooftops around the temple. Can the kumbabishekam be photographed from outside the temple? or are cameras prohibited even in the Sithirai streets?
I would be glad if you could help me with this info.

@Wulfy, Thanks for your interest shown in my blog. You can see the Kumbabishekam from any rooftops if the people own the house permits. Also you can take snapshots outside the temple.
