Special Pradosham performed on the previous Tamil year last New Moon Day

A special Pradosham was performed in the Lord Arunachaleswarar Temple at Thiruvannamalai on the auspicious day of the Amavasya (New Moon Day) day of the last Tamil calendar month of Panguni, of the recently concluded previous Tamil calendar Year Hevilambi.

Pradosham is a bimonthly occasion on the thirteenth day of every fortnight in Hindu calendar. It is closely connected with the worship of Hindu god Shiva. The auspicious 3 hour period, 1.5 hours before and after the sunset is one of the optimum times for worship of Lord Shiva.
