Thiruvannamalai Deepam Today

Thiruvannamalai Deepam Today

The world famous 'Thiruvannamalai Deepam' is lighted today in the hills of Thiruvannamalai. Morning was today is 'Bharani Deepam' and towards evening they would light the 'Maha Deepam'.  We have earlier discussed the greatness of Thiruvannamalai and its peer towns like Thiruvarur, Kasi (Varanasi), Chidambaram over here.

Today, while coming through Tambaram, I could see a record number of buses crowding and all bound for 'Thiruvannamalai'. All roads lead to Thiruvannamalai today! For Sri Vaishnavite, the variant of Thiruvannamalai Deepam, which is observed as Pancharatra Deepam is celebrated on 5th December 2006.

Now the greatness of Thiruvannamalai can be seen right through your desktop too. They have launched a website called 'Om Arunachala'. Check out the website for full details about Girivalam, Maha Deepam, Temple History, Travel Details etc.
