Keralites living in the national capital on Monday celebrated Vishu, the summer harvest festival, with traditional fervour and gaiety.

Dressed in their festive best, a large number of people thronged temples in the city seeking blessings from God for the coming year.

A long queue was witnessed at North Guruvayoorappan temple, set up by Keralites in Mayur Vihar of east Delhi, from early morning.

People woke up early to observe "Vishu Kani" which is the sighting of auspicious articles like rice, gold, cash, flowers and fruits tastefully laid out in shining platters.

Elders gave cash gifts to their relatives while a sumptuous feast with a variety of dishes made of seasonal vegetables and fruits was also part of the celebrations.
