[1of2_last]The Tamil Calendar month of Aadi is considered sacred in the Hindu Tradition. And when certain special stars or condition fall during this month, they are also celebrated with religious vigour – for example, Aadi New Moon Day (Amavasai) is considered to be sacred for paying obeisance to the departed ancestors.

Aadi Pooram was celebrated today in a grand manner in Thiruvannamalai temple today. A special ‘Theerthavari’ (sacred water being showered on the deity of the Lord) was performed in the Sivagangai Sacre Pond located in the 5th Corridor of the Thiruvannamalai temple. Earlier, the deity of Parasakthi Amman was taken to the Theerthavari Mandapam (Hall) offering Darshan to the devotees.
