Aadi Krithigai at Tiruttani Temple – Aadi Kartika Festival of Muruga

Aadi Krithigai, at the famous Tiruttani Murugan Temple in Tamil Nadu, is observed on the Karthigai Nakshatram in the Aadi Month. Aadi Karthigai 2024 date is July 30. Adi Kartika Theppa Thiruvizha is observed on the day.

Situated atop a hill, Tiruttani is one among the six abodes of Muruga.

The popular belief is that Muruga who was born as six different babies was looked after by the six Karthigai stars. He was later joined by Goddess Parvati. The Karthigai Nakshatram is therefore considered highly auspicious by Lord Muruga devotees.
