FESTIVALS

Every temple celebrates certain days held dear to the archamurti together with those responsible for building and expanding of the temple, wherein the adorable murti abides and displays his powers for making his children progress on righteous path. Here in this temple, many kinds of periodical celebrations take place, why the temple calendar is overcrowded with big red dots indicating the innumerable auspicious days of the temple. 

Though every day is a festival day here with various kinds of programmes and offering of sevas to the Lord, certain days are deemed very auspicious and they draw lakhs of devotees from far and near, when the whole hill metamorphoses into Bhulokaswarga.

Of the gala days, Punguni Utharam, Thaipusam, Kandasashti, Agni Nakshatram take precedence over the rest of days, like Vaikasi Visakam, Thai Amavasya. Tamil New Years day, Margali masa special sevas etc. All the festivals are celebrated with matchless devotional fervour, when the whole town overflows with yatris causing insurmountable hardships to temple authority and government. Each major festival has certain special ritualistic prayer services that mark it out from the rest.

Let us throw a quick look for proper comprehension.
