Ardhanareeswarar Temple, Tiruchengode - Festivals
Every year the famous 15 - day festival called Vaikasi Visakam Car Festival (May – June) is celebrated with four car chariots. The first is for Lord Vinayaga, the second for Muruga or Sengottuvelavar, the third carries Lord Arthanareeswarar and the fourth for Lord Aadhikesava Perumal. During the annual festival celebrated in the Tamil month of Vaikasi, the festival image of Arthanareeswarar is brought down from the hill. People from all over the state of Tamil Nadu visit the temple and perform the Girivalam by going round the whole hill.
This festival is famous among the towns and villages surrounding Triuchengode. It is a big festival for the Triuchengode people. New Moon days and Full Moon days attract more devotees to the temple. Three worship services are offered each day. The late night worship service (Artha Jama Pooja) is considered to be of importance here.
