26th July 2017.
Our kula theivam Sri Veeramathi Amman’s annual festival was celebrated of 26th July 2017. Able to reach the temple little earlier to the Abhishekam this year. I was fortunate to see the abhishekam of Sri Veeramathy Amman. ( During my last year’s visit, had seen the theerthakudam procession and Ammai azhaippu on the previous day ). Regular Pongal and Vilakku maa procession was conducted with nadhaswaram and fire crackers after performing pooja at nearby Perumal Temple.
After Amman’s alangaram special pooja was conducted to Amman, Saptha Kannimar and Karuppanaswamy. Nearly about 15 goats were sacrificed to Karuppanaswamy. In the mean time my brother asked mee to see the Thalapanai ( Thala palm tree ) flowering near my native place. Utilizing this opportunity went to Nichampalayam to see the menhirs. ( which will be written in a separate post). Since I am a Pure vegetarian, skipped the annadhanam and went to my native to see my mom.
