Karthika Deepotsavam:
Karthika Deepam Festival is also called as “The Festival of Lights”. This falls in the Lunar month of Karthika when the star Kritika (Krithigai) is on the ascendant which usually occurs on full moon day.

This festival is considered as the extension of Deepavali festival. In the olden days, people used to double the number of lamps every day from the day of Deepavali and end up with huge number of lamps on the day of Karthika (Karthigai) Deepam.

It is the day when we light lamps symbolic of blossoming knowledge. It is also the day when we burn the bad behaviors symbolized by chokka panai.

NOTE:-
Only Til oil or Ghee lamps will be lit at the Temple

Thai Poosam

Thai Poosam ( தைப்பூசம்) is celebrated on the full moon in the Tamil month of Thai (Jan/Feb). Pusam refers to a star that is at its highest point during the festival. The festival commemorates both the birthday of Lord Murugan (also Subramaniam), the youngest son of Shiva and Parvati, and the occasion when Parvati gave Murugan a vel (lance) so he could vanquish the evil demon Soorapadman.
