Tiruvannamalai Arunachaleswarar temple’s MahaKumbhabhishekam is being celebrated on Monday, 6th Feb 2017. MahaKumbhabhishekamof Hindu temples are held either to formally consecrate a new Temple or re-consecrate an old one, which usually occurs at twelve-year intervals. The temple gets fully renovated with extensive cleaning and restoration work. The rituals culminate with the priests’ pouring sanctified water over the temple’s goupurams and sannidhanamskumbhas. Leading up to the consecration, a number of rituals are performed by the sthapati (main temple architect) in charge of the construction or renovation and by Shivachariyars by performing various homams at specially built yagasalais.
Aruna literally means “force” and achala means “that which cannot be moved.” So, Arunachaleswarar Temple represents Lord Siva as indomitable power. And this famous Temple is now attracting an ever increasing number of pilgrims each year and it will be a divine act for every Hindu to plan to come and stay at Tiruvannamalai to witness the mega event of MahaKumbhabhishekam.
