Thaipoosam in Melmaruvathur Adhiparasakthi Temple, Tamil Nadu

Thaipoosam is a big festival in Melmaruvathur Adhiparasakthi Temple, Tamil Nadu. In 2014, Thaipusam date is January 17.

Sakthi Malai (irumudi), Velvi and Jyothi Darisanam are the important aspects of Thaipoosam festival in Melmaruvathur. Melmaruvathur is located at a distance of 92 kms from Chennai in Chennai – Tindivanam Highway.

It is to note that Jyothi Darisanam is from 5 PM to 7 PM on January 17, 2014.

Sakthi Malai (Irumudi) is a very important occasion to the devotees of Amma (the Mother Goddess). Sakthis put the sakthi malai in their mandrams and will observe fasting. Then, they come to Siddhar peetam and submit their Irumudi by doing the Abhishegam to Suyambu. Amma has given a chance for all of us to do the Abhishegam to the Goddess twice a year. One is during the Irumudi and the other is at Aadipooram.
