TIRUCHENDUR

THE PRAYER SERVICES

There are several kinds of poojas performed to the deities, from early dawn to late in the night, and they are offered in strict accordance with the Kumara Tantra.  They begin with Viswaroopam at 5.30 A.M. followed by Udayamarthandam at 6 A.M. Between 8 A.M and 12.30 PM., the regular poojas, like Modal Kala Sandhi, Sirukala Sandhi, Peria Kala Sandhi and Uchaikala Pooja are offered, and after that the doors are closed.  In the evening they are opened at 5 PM with Sayaratchi puja and closed by 9.35 PM. with Ekantham. 

Though this routine is followed everyday, the month of Margazhi brings some alterations in timings to accommodate specials, when Nityapuja begins at 3 A.M. and ends at 8.30 PM. Another interesting feature observed here is that all the poojas are offered both to Siva and Shanmuga alternately.  There is one more pooja called Rahasya Deeparadhana which is made to Lord Shanmuga behind curtain first and then to Subrahmanya, for the prevalent belief that Subrahmanya gives his Atmasakti to Shanmuga.
