Shiv-Rajyabhishek Divas photos

Shivaji was crowned a king in a lavish ceremony at Raigad on 6 June 1674. As per Hindu Calendar it was on the 13th day (trayodashi) of the first fortnight of the month of 'Jyeshtha'in the year 1596. Gaga Bhatt officially presided over the ceremony, and had a gold vessel filled with the seven sacred waters of the rivers Yamuna, Indus, Ganges, Godavari, Krishna and Kaveri. He held the vessel over Shivaji's head and chanted the coronation mantras, as the water kept dripping from the several tiny holes in the vessel. After the ablution, Shivaji bowed before Jijamata and touched her feet. Nearly fifty thousand people gathered at Raigad for the ceremonies. Shivaji was bestowed with the sacred thread jaanva, with the Vedas and was bathed in an abhisheka. (Source Wikipedia)
