On October 13th, 2013, Purattasi Thiruvonam Thirunaal was celebrated in a grand manner for Swami Desikan at His avathara sthalam of Thoopul Sri Vilakkoli Perumal Sannidhi. Swami Desikan did mangalasasanam for Sri Vilakkoli Perumal in the morning. Thereafter, Swami Desikan had purappadu in Periya Thanga Pallakku to Kanchi Sri Devaperumal Thirukkoil. Significantly, today is the only day when Swami Desikan can be seen in Anjali Hastham for mangalasasamam of Sri Varadaraja Perumal. In the evening, Swami Desikan blessed the devotees from Pushpa Pallakku.
The 10-day utsavam is usually celebrated in a grand manner with Thirveedhi purappadu for Swami Desikan on different vahanams on all the days, both morning and evening. Thoopul is located within 1 km distance from Kanchi Varadharaja Perumal Sannidhi. For detailed pathrigai for the utsavam, please visit: 745th Thirunakshathra Mahothsavam of Swami Desikan at Thoopul
