How to Observe Vaikasi Visakam

Vaikasi Visakam is the birthday of Lord Muruga. The festival is performed with a special puja to Lord Murugan and Sarkarai Pongal is offered as Neivedyam. Some of the Hindu religious poems addressed to Lord Muruga such as Kanda Sashti Kavacham, Subrahmanya Bhujangam, Thiruppugazh (Muthai Tharu Bakthi), and Shanmukha Kavacham are recited with devotion. According to Hindu Tamilians belief, these Kavasams protect everybody from the evil spirits.

Devotees carry milk pots to Subramanya Swamy temples on this day. Some people take Kavadi - a strong ritual bearing some form of physical hardship - on the Vaikasi Visakam day. Valli Kalyanam is held in Murugan Temples on Vaikasi Visakham day. Large numbers of devotees throng especially to famous Lord Subramanya Temples nearby.

In 2022, Vaikasi Visakam festival is on 22 June 2022.
