Thiruchanur Pavithrotsavam


The three-day annual ‘Pavitrotsavam’ at Sri Padmavathi Ammavari Temple in Tiruchanur was celebrated in a grand manner between September 27th (Thursday) and 29th (Saturday), 2012.

Temple priests conducted ‘homam’ in the specially prepared ‘yagasala’ and performed ‘Snapana Tirumanajanam’ in the evening to the processional deity of Goddess Padmavathi amidst chanting of verses from the scriptures.

The objective behind performing ‘Pavitrotsavam’ every year in the temples is to seek the pardon of the deity for any act of commission and omission committed inadvertently by the priests, by the temple authorities or by the visiting pilgrims and restore the purity in its original pristine form.

The following are some of the photographs taken during the utsavam….
