Daily Poojas at the Temple

As per the instructions of the Divine Mother, the following poojas for the benefit of the devotees are conducted at the temple to the different consecrated deities. Devotees may perform any of these poojas of their own volition or as per the advice of Annai Aadhi Parasakthi as revealed during the Arul Vaakku.

  • Abhishegam
  • Sandana Kaappu
  • Velli Kavasam
  • Kumkuma Kaappu

Abhishegam

Abhishegam refers to the ritualistic ceremony of bathing the consecrated idol with water, scented water, milk, curd, butter and other offerings, followed by cleansing of the idol and decorating it with fresh garments, adornments and garlands. The process ends with Arati (waving of camphor lit lamps).

At the temple, Abhishegam is performed to Vinaitheertha Vinayagar, Annai Aadhi Parasakthi and Annai Mandhira Paavai deities.  For Annai Mandhira Paavai, a special Abhishegam is additionally performed during the “Raahu Kaalam” period on Tuesdays (3-4:30 p.m), Fridays (10:30 a.m-12.00 noon) and Sundays (4:30-6:00 p.m).

Devotees may book and perform an Abhishegam on any day of their choice, except on days in which special poojas, velvis or other celebrations are conducted at the temple. Please contact the temple office at 044-2246 0820, 2246 2910 for further details.

Sandana Kaappu (Sandal Paste Worship)

In Tamil, the word ‘Kaappu’ refers to a protective shield. It is a widely held belief, especially in Tamil Nadu, that a “Kaappu” form of worship invokes the protective blessings of the deity against karmic troubles and works like an amulet to protect the individual performing it.

Sandana Kaappu refers to a type of worship in which a consecrated idol is fully covered with freshly prepared sandal paste. After smearing the deity with sandal paste, the priest also decorates it with suitable adornments and garlands and finally performs an Arati (waving of camphor lit lamps).

It’s seen that, quite often, the Divine Mother prescribes this form of worship to specific individuals when they seek Her guidance during Arul Vaakku. Devotees may also perform Sandana Kaappu of their own volition.

In our temple, Sandana Kappu for Annai Aadhi Parasakthi is performed on Fridays and for Annai Mandhira Paavai, on Saturdays. Please contact the temple office at 044-2246 0820, 2246 2910 for further details.

Velli Kavasam (Silver Shield Worship)

Velli Kavasam refers to a type of worship in which a consecrated idol is adorned with a silver shield or cover. Typically, the silver covering for each idol is made to order to carefully fit its form and contours; the deity is adorned with this cover only on special days of worship or on the express request of a devotee, as an offering to invoke that deity’s blessings.

In our temple, the Velli Kavasam worship is offered to Vinaitheertha Vinayagar, Annai Aadi Parasakthi and Annai Mandhira Paavai deities, either on the advice of the Divine Mother, as revealed during Arul Vaakku or out of a devotee’s volition.

Please contact the temple office at 044-2246 0820, 2246 2910 for further details.

Kunguma Kaappu

Kungkuma (Kumkuma) Kaappu is a type of worship in which a consecrated idol is smeared and decorated with Kumkum (made from dried, powdered turmeric and slaked lime), along with adornments and garlands, followed by an Arati.

The deep red of the kumkum gives the deity a striking look that’s both fearsome and compassionate.

In our temple, the Kungkuma Kaappu is performed only for the deity, Annai Adhiparasakthi and only on Wednesdays.
