Pavithrotsavam At Thirukkudanthai Sri Aravamudhan Sannidhi – Day 1,2 & 5



Annual Pavitrotsavams are purificatory rituals recommended by Aagamas to expiate the commissions and the omissions associated with daily worship (Aaraadhanam) of the Lord at His consecrated temples. Lapses in the performance of the Aaraadhanam are recognized and a detailed ceremony consisting of homam in front of the Utsava Moorty at a specially constructed yaaga saala. The decoration of all the Moortys of the temple with specially prepared necklaces made of dyed cotton thread is carried out and the day concludes with a pornahoothi. This is an elaborate utsavam , which can be conducted from 3-10 days depending on the temple tradition. The time for the performance of the Pavitrotsavam is different from temple to temple.

Pavithrotsavam was celebrated in a grand manner at Thirukudanthai Sri Aravamudhan Sannidhi. The following are the photos taken during the Utsavam :
