When The Parties Over!

This year the first night of the lighting of the Deepam flame will be December 3rd.

The Arunachala Deepam remains burning until dawn. Every evening for about 8-10 days, the Hill Cauldron is relit at dusk and fed ghee and offerings throughout the night.

Once the festival is over the Cauldron is brought down the Hill and remains in storage at the Arunachaleswarar Temple UNTIL THE NEXT YEAR!
