Book Your Spiritual Trip To Tiruvannamalai

25 Nov, 2020 | Taxida

The one destination that every devotee wants to visit in South India is Tiruvannamalai. The pilgrims strongly believe that visiting the Arunachaleswarar Temple on the auspicious day of Karthigai Deepam brings good luck and fortune to them. This thousand-year-old shrine is dedicated to Lord Shiva, fondly called Arunachaleshwarar or Annamalayar by the devotees. Thousands of people travel from Chennai to Tiruvannamalai to participate in the special arti on the day of the Karthigai Deepam festival.

Every year the Karthigai Deepam festival is celebrated lavishly as it is one of the most significant shrine festivals in Tamil Nadu. But this year, it is expected to be a hush affair due to the global pandemic. The government has put forth many new restrictions to limit the spread of COVID-19 in places people gather in crowds. Therefore for the first time in history, the Arunachaleswarar Temple will not be open for the public on Karthigai Deepam, which falls on November 19. There will be no Mahadeepam this year to mark the auspicious occasion of Karthikai Deepam.

However, there is no need to get sad over this, as the district administration allows devotees inside the temple from November 17 to December 3 (except November 29). So you can still visit the shrine, but you have to register your entry pass online on the temple's official website. Currently, they are allowing only limited people into the temple, like only 5000 people per day. People are allowed to visit the temple from 6.30 am to 8 pm. So if you wish to see the temple anytime this week, do book it fastly as the reservation closes soon. You don't have to worry about transportation as you can hire a good Chennai to Tiruvannamalai drop taxi at an economical price.

The lighting of Mahadeepam and Bharani Deepam is the critical event that usually happens in this temple, and it charms lakhs of people to Tiruvannamalai every year. For this year, the Bharani Deepam will be lit on the temple at 4 am, and the Maha Deepam will be lit on the Annamalaiyar hills at 6 pm on November 19. Every year, a few pilgrims are generally permitted to climb the Tiruvannamalai hills. This year, no one is allowed, and even the usual annadhanam distribution is stopped this year.

Also, Girivalam, one of the other important occasions in the temple, is canceled on the day of Deepam and the Pournami day, which falls on November 30. The car festival will take place only on the premises of the temple.

All the safety protocols relating to the Coronavirus are strictly followed in the temple. Wearing a mask is mandatory for all devotees, and automatic hand sanitizer dispensers are equipped at the entry point to prevent the spread of germs.

If you plan to visit the shrine for worship anytime between November 17 and December 2, you have to register your names at Arunachaleswarar Temple's official website - for free darshan.
