[Sri Ramanavami image] [NewSponsored Sevas)] [AbharaNam images]

The temple attracts pilgrims throughout the year. Ramanavami is celebrated every year in a grand manner in the months of April/May. Thirukalyanam and Kanakibishekam are the two important events in Ra manavami festival.

Sri Rama Navami: Dolai /VidAyARRi for the Divya Dampathis. (38.93K)

Thayaar always goes with perumaal in all purappaadus; they are never separated.

On Sravanam day the "sravana deepam" is taken by a divine person on whom it is believed the Lord will prevade at this time of deepam. He will carries the deepam around the temple as lead by two other deepams - one is vaal deepam of aanchnEyaa and the other is satti deepam of Lord Narasimhaa. Numerous devotees from all walks of life wait for this event on Sravanam day as they ask the Lord (ie the main deepam bearer) anishta nivartthi for their proble ms and boons for their penances. No science can reason this experience as this has to be sought and felt by one. One has to see this deepam sEvai to appreciate the majesty of this Lord's prevasion. There are few other temples in this area such as thErezhu ndoor temple where also the sravana deepam is observed. Since a unique relevance to this Lord and Lord Guruvaayoorappan exists, this Lord is also dressed on some days as Guruvaayoorappan and bakthaas offer "thulaabaaram" to this Lord, also as for Sri Gu ruvaayoorappan.
