By according the Nattukottai Chettiars' Hindu temple the highest order of preservation status as a National Monument, we will hence be safeguarding it for its pivotal function as a place of worship as well as social space for the Indian community, and also ensuring that our built heritage is preserved sensitively in our multicultural society."

"Thiru Karthigai" Birth star of Lord Murugan

Date: Friday, 5th Dec 2014

The Karthigai Nakshatram is of great importance to Sri Murugan as it is considered as his birth star. When it falls on a Monday and occurs during the month of Karthigai it is considered especially sacred and devotees undertake fasts and special prayers to seek the Lords' blessings.

Lord Muruga was formed from the third eye of Lord Shiva as six flames in a lake Saravana Poigai. On Thirukarthigai day, all his six forms were united by Parvathi (his mother) and so he is celebrated as Shanmuga meaning one with six faces. Special poojas are performed to Lord Muruga on this day.

As a new addition to Nagarathar celebration, this year marked the carrying of kavadi and paalkudam by members of society apart from regular public participation.
