XII World Conference of Masonic Grand Lodges & 51st Grand Festival of Grand Lodge of India

The 2012 Annual Grand festival of the Grand Lodge of India is special this year as it runs from November 21 until November 25th 2012 following the XII World Conference of Masonic Grand Lodges at Chennai in India.

Here are some pictures and videos from the event that I could gather.

I will post more as I find them :)

A big thank you to M. W .Bro. Andrey Bogdanov!! (
Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Russia)

The invocation before the proceedings:

The traditional drummers welcome the delegates:

This sort of drumming accompanied by elephants in the form of a procession is an Indian traditional form of welcome for honoured guests.
