MELMARUVATHUR

ANGAPRADAKSHANAM

Though circumambulation-walking or rolling round the temple is common in all Hindu temples, here it has acquired special significance. It is a ritual infused with mystery and forms an integral part of worship. Almost all go round rolling the shrines in wet clothes, believing that it fetches manifold blessings. 

This is a Siddhakshetra where many evolved souls are doing penance in their ethereal forms even now. By making anga pradakshna, one can partake the sanctity fully, as the whole body comes to touch the ground while it goes round the places of worship. It also enkindles vigor, instills self-confidence and cleanness the bowels through the discharge of certain fluids lying in wait for mischief. Above all, it signifies one's insignificance against the omnipotence of the Jaganmata. Hence the advocacy by the Pithadhipathi Sri. H.H. Adigalar.
