The golden chariot


The chariot covered with gold sheets is taken around in the Aadi Veethy from 1980 A.D. In the golden chariot the goddess in full adorments is taken in procession around the Aadi Veethy in the first day of every Tamil month. This is arranged by the Devasthanam (the governing body of the temple). Also if the devotees wish to pull the chariot , it is arranged on payment of Rs. 1001/- to the treasury of the temple. The devotees in return are given the honour of being adorned with a Parivattam (a silk cloth) and a present of a metal pot on behalf of the temple."
