FESTIVALS

AGNI NAKSHATRAM

It is a 14th day festival celebrated in the month of May. During this festival devout Muruga devotees made giripradakshana commencing it at 1 A.M and ending by 10 AM and again the same ritual begins at 4 PM and continues upto 10 PM. It is quite ardeous during the midsummer, but their faith is so infinite that they feel like floating over the clouds at the touch of cool breeze blowing, as it were, from the Karunadradrishti of Bhagawan Muruga, just as the pieces of cotton sail in the sky, when cool wind blows over them. 

To add to this, the sweet cool fragrance emanating from the Kadamaba tress in full bloom seen all along the road in this season relieves them from fatigue. Another oddity that greets the eyes is the large pool of water collected atop the hill brought from the Cauvery river by ardent Bhaktas from Kodumudi for abhishekam purpose. The water bearers lend colour and enchantment, as they walk along. the streets to the accompaniment music and dance with pots on their heads. This festival concludes with a majestic procession of the utsavamurti of Perianayaki temple to the Adivaram and round the Giriveedhi.
