After completion of the 10 day Arunachala Karthigai Festival, Lord Arunachaleswarar performs girivalam of the 14 km roadway around the perimeter of the Hill. This girivalam of Swamy gives an opportunity to devotees to take His darshan who are otherwise unable to view Him at Arunachaleswarar Temple. The only other time each year that Swamy performs Arunachala girivalam is during the January Pongal Festival.
