The annual Pavithrotsavam (festival of purification) is scheduled to be performed at Sri Kothandaramaswamy Temple, Vaduvur, from November 11 to17, 2013. On the concluding day, Theerthavari (immersion ceremony) will be performed at Sarayu Pushkarni (Vaduvur temple tank).
As the name indicates, it is the purification ceremony which is conducted to get rid of the mistakes (nivarthi) that occur in the daily worship and other religious rites performed in the temple. It is a well prescribed ritual, where the archakas pray for forgiveness for all lapses–conscious or otherwise– in the daily worship.
Astikas in and around the area may make it convenient to participate in the utsavam and get the anugraham of Sita Piratti and Sri Kothandaramar.
