Agathiyar's Jayanthi and Guru Puja is just around the corner. This year it falls on 18 December 2016. Temples, Ashrams, Peedhams and individuals all over are making preparations to celebrate this event in a grand way.
Tavayogi Thangarasan Adigal of Kallar Ashram has worked hard towards completing his new ashram in time to host this annual event. This year it would be a four day celebration unlike the earlier two day fests.
Meanwhile Thavathiru Kumar Swamigal of the Sri Agathiyar Ashram and his Guru Thavathiru Kaathu Swamigal too will hold a similar event at their Ashram in Periyatadagam, Coimbatore. This event will be held on 18 December 2016 too from 9am till 12 noon beginning with the Vezhvi Yagam and followed by 108 Muligai Abhisegam for Agathiyar and continued with Parvathi Parameswaran Thirukalyanam.
