Subsequently, the temple will be opened and the rituals of  Punniyakavachanam and Sudhi (cleansing of the temple after the negative occasion of the solar eclipse) will be performed and the temple corridors will be opened by 2.00 PM to allow the devotees in.

TTD has cancelled the usual events under the group of Arjitah Sevaisof Thiruppavadai, Kalyana Utsavam, Oonjal Sevai, Arjitha Brahmotsavam scheduled usually to be performed on 26th morning.

As the solar eclipse, this time is occurring during the half-yearly vacation period for the school/college students, TTD has reminded the devotees to note the temple-closure if planning a visit!
