TIRUCHENDUR

Festivals

The town and its temple are thronged with devotees every day, coming from far and near, but on two occasions, they overflow and exceed lacks when special bandobust arrangements are made to enabling easy darsan to one and all.  The entire town goes gay during these days with pomp splendor dominating the whole temple complex and its activities. The month of Avani lends unusual charm to the temple, with its annual festival celebrated with great religious fervour and it lasts for 12 days.

The Brahmotsavam falling in Feb-Mar also lasts for 12 days during which hectic activities emerge from every segment of temple life.  The Vasanthotsavam falling in Apl-May is equally a gala affai.  It is in this festival Senthil Nayakar is brought to Vasanta Mandapam decorated fittingly and tastefully for the occasion.  It is a feast to the eyes.  The Kandashasti falling on Oct-Nov and Tirukalyanam in May-June celebrated with great fanfare have great attraction for devout people.  They visit invariably with their kith and kin and participate lustily, spending lavishly on decoration of deities.  On feeding of the poor also.
