Significance of Thiruvaadipooram by U. Ve. Sriman Dr. D. Srinivasan

Thiruvaadipooram is the Thirunakshathram of Sri Andal. Thousands of people from Tamil Nadu participate in the “Thiruvaadipooram” festival celebrated in the Srivilliputhur Andal Temple. After early morning special pujaas, the presiding deities, Shri Rengamannar and Goddess Andal are taken in decorated palanquins to the car. The festival marks the adoption of presiding deity, Andal, by Periyazhwar after he found her near a Tulasi plant in the garden of Vatapatrasayi Temple at Srivilliputhur on the eighth day of the Tamil month of Aadi.
