Previously after regular ‘Poojas’, Lord Jeyanthinathar (Lord Muruga) was taken in a procession in the golden temple car at around 2 pm to the ‘Sashti Mandapam’, from where the Lord was taken to the sea shore to vanquish the demon king Soorapadman at around 5:40 pm. Furthermore before that, the ritual of the Lord with the spear beheading Gajamugasooran and the Singamugasooran was observed.
Moreover later in the evening, devotees took a holy dip in the sea and concluded their sixth day fast. ‘Thirukalyanam’ will be performed on the seventh day of the ‘Sashti’ festival.
