Swarga Vathil literally means the “Doors to Heaven”. On this day, Swargavathil or Vaikunta Dwara, a door seen on the north side of Vishnu temples, is opened to devotees. It is believed that having darshan of Lord Vishnu through this door will help to attain “Swarga” or Heaven. In 2023, the date of Swargavathil Ekadasi is on 23 December 2023.
