PazhayaseevrAm Parvettai



On January 16, 2012, the day following Pongal, Sri Tepperumal made his customary visit to Sri Lakshminarasimhaswamy Temple at Pazhayaseevaram hillock  for a Parvettai.

On arrival at Pazhayaseevam (about 15 km from Chingleput enroute Kaanchi), the day starts with “pourvai-kalayum-utsavam” followed by Thirumanjanam and in the evening at 4 PM, Lord Devathirajan, with the Manjai-veyyil, just starts descending the hills and proceeds towards Thiru-mukkudal – a “sangamam” of 3 rivers at Palar.


It is a beautiful setting atop the hills with one-side Prabhanda Ghoshti and the other side Vedha-Ghosthi which the perumal enjoys.

After Thiru-mukkudal, perumal returns and is being presented “savari” thaligai. Thereafter, perumal is ready for the savari throughout night, transfers himself on the “mena” – a special pallakku and goes through all the villages throughout the night starting Pazhayaseevam until Kaancheepuram and reaches Kaanchi the next day morning.

Swamy Desikan concludes in Varadaraja Panchashat…
