Yesterday, November 10th 2013, Mudhal Azhwars Thirunakshatra Utsavam was celebrated grandly at Sri Madhava Perumal Thirukovil at Mylapore. Poigai Azhwar, Bhoodathazhwar and Peyazhwar are the three mudhal (first) Azhwars who were not only contemporary Azhwars; but were born on three consecutive days in SiddhArti year, Aippasi month on Thiruvonam, Avittam and Sadayam nakshathrams respectively. The babies appeared on flowers of different kind (and not were born like us actually!- They are ayonijars). Poigai Azhwar, was born (made to appear by the Lord) in Kanchipuram (Thiruvekka), while Bhoodathazhwar in Mahabalipuram (Thirukadalmallai) and Peyazhwar in Thirumylai (present Mylapore).
