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. Accordingly the traffic congestion at Tiruchendur during the Soorasamharam day of the Kanda Sashti festival was well managed by the Thoothukudi district police. As per report when around 6,000 car passes were issued to permit four wheelers up to the temple bus stand that created great discomfort to the devotees, this year on the suggestion of the district police, distribution of car passes to the public was restricted to 1,500 this year.
