Temple Cars

The wooden wheels of the Tiruvannamalai Temple cars that carry the idols of Lord Murugan and Vinayakar have been replaced with iron wheels which were made at the cost of Rs.3.72 Lakh (US$8,335) by BHEL, Tiruchi. The cars of Annamalayar and Unnamulayammai have already been fixed with iron wheels.

Arunachaleswarar Temple has five cars which will be pulled around the four Mada Streets during the Festival. This year, devotees donated ten ornamental umbrellas to the Temple which will be carried with the Deities on their procession.

A Chennai based textile house has donated Rs.1 Lakh (US$2,240) of cloth to be used as covers for Temple cars.
