Karthigai Deepam Festival 2011, Day 4

Throughout the 10 day Karthigai Deepam Festival, there are constant pujas of the Gods inside the Temple and circumambulation of the Gods both around the outside perimeter of the Siva Sannidhi, and around the outside of the 26 acre Temple perimeter.

The programme during Karthigai Deepam follows a specific order, with the Gods being carried in procession on various vahanas (vehicles) on certain days.

As well as pujas and processions, there are also daily cultural programmes throughout the Festival period, that take places inside the Temple Compound. Definitely a thrilling time at Tiruvannamalai.
