Madurai Chithirai Festival 2017

The Chithirai festival of Madurai is one of the most colorful and vivacious festivals of the region that falls in the Tamil month of Chithirai, usually between April and May. The festival has cultural and mythological significance that makes it all the more special and unique. It is celebrated from the last 400 years with great enthusiasm and pride. The festival celebrates the wedding ceremony of Lord Shiva with Lord Vishnu’s sister, Goddess Meenakshi. The idols of both the groom and bride are carried in gold chariots and people gather in huge number to accompany the god and goddess. The whole procession is a grand affair that includes people from various parts of the country and the world.

The festival lasts for almost 15 days and involves a lot of traditional rituals and practices. People from nearby villages travel on bullock carts as a part of the ancient tradition and consider it a vital part of the festival too. Many more ceremonies can be seen during the festival that includes hosting a flag at the temple, fairs, distributing coconut sweets is another popular custom that catches the eyes of the visitors. The whole ambience is filled with the prayers of the devotees. This year Chithirai Festival will be organised from 28th April to 13th May 2017 with the same zeal.
