Meenakshi Amman Temple – Pooja Timings

Meenakshi Amman Temple – Pooja Timings
The temple is a hive of activity, with a colourful temple elephant, flower sellers and musical performances. There is an evening ceremony when an image of Sundareswarar is carried in procession, to a heady accompaniment of whirling pipe and drum music and clouds of incense, from the shrine near the east gopuram to Meenakshi, to ‘sleep’ by her side; he is returned first thing the next morning. The procession around the temple is occasionally led by the elephant and a cow. During the day the elephant is on continual duty, ‘blessing’ visitors with its trunk and then collecting a small offering.
