Thiru Mukkoodal Appan Venkatesa Perumal Temple – Festivals

Thiru Mukkoodal Appan Venkatesa Perumal Temple – Festivals
Kanchi Varadar’s annual visit to Thiru Mukkoodal:
Kanchipuram Sri Varadaraja Perumal’s Parivettai is a very popular festival here. Five Perumals - Lord Varadarajaswamy of Kanchipuram, Lord Lakshmi Narasimha, Pazhaya Seevaram, Sri Appan Venkatesa Perumal, Thirumukkudal and two other Perumals of nearby temples meet together at Thirumukkudal temple courtyard and stay in different mandapas  on Kaanum Pongal Day - Tamil month 'Thai' (16th January), which is said to be a delight to watch. On this evening, Lord Srinivasa of Thiru Mukkoodal welcomes Salavakkam Perumal and Pazhaya Seevaram Narasimha, Kanchi Varadar as well as other one nearby Perumal at this temple. Later in the evening, all these five deities go out on a street procession around Thiru Mukkoodal.
Other Festivals:
·        Krishna Jayanthi
·        Vaikunta Ekadesi
·        Garuda Sevai
·        Karthigai
·        Thiruvonam (Perumal’s star) is special every month
