Thirukarthigai Deepa Utsavam was grandly celebrated at Valvil Ramar Temple, Pullaboothangudi. On November 25th 2015, Sri Ramar had beautiful alangaram followed by Thiruveethi Purappadu and witness the sokkapanai during Purappadu. Many Bakthas participated and received the blessings of Sri Ramar. Valvil Raman, who is the Emperumaan of this sthalam, after Sitapirattiyar his wife is lost, he is holding only his Kothandam, the Bow. This is the only support he has inspite of loosing his wife. But, Bhoomi Pirattiyyar, who helped Rama in the final funeral in Thiruputtkuzhi is giving support here and is sitting along with Valvil Ramar. Since, the Lord does the final ceremony for Jadaayu, the Eagle belongs to the pull family (One king of bird family) and after finishing the ceremony, he takes rest. So this shetram is called as “Pullam Kudi”. Kudi means the place of staying in Tamil.
