Theppam Festival at Madurai Meenakshi Temple

Theppam Festival held at the Mariamman Teppakulam in Madurai marks the culmination of the 12-day Theppam and Thaipusam festival held at the Madurai Meenakshi Temple.

On the day, the deities Goddess Meenakshi (Parvati) and Lord Sundareswarar (Shiva) are taken out to attend the Theppam Festival at Marriamman Theppakulam (pond). The deities move through the pond on specially designed floats for the ritual.

On the Theppam Festival day, no pujas and rituals are held at the Madurai Meenakshi Sundareswarar Temple.
