 The system of doing Archana (Chanting of hymns/songs/slokas to the deity of the Lord/Goddess) in Tamil has been introduced in the famous Chennai Vadapalani Temple of Lord Muruga.

This has been hugely welcomed by the devotees!

The Hindu Religious and Endowment Board had ordered a few years ago that Archanas can be performed in Tamil as well in all temples. Yet, until recent times, most temples did not introduce the system of Tamil Archanas. However, people from various sectors have been emphasising that Tamil Archanas should be performed in all the temples.

In this scenario, the 1st ever instance of performing Archanas in Tamil has been introduced in the famous Chennai Vadapalani Lord Muruga temple! There has been huge popular, favourable, and appreciative response from all devotees! They have now started looking forward to this system being extended in all other temples as well!

An official from the Hindu Religious and Endowment Board shared in this regard: The system of performing Tamil Archanas has been introduced in the Chennai Vadapalani Lord Muruga temple on the auspicious the occasion of the Tamil New Year Day (1st day of the 1st Tamil calendar month Chithirai). Henceforth, the 1st Archana performed in this temple in Tamil after the opening of the temple corridors will be performed in Tamil. In other times, Tamil Archans will be performed on the request of devotees.
