It will be a historic moment on April 1 when Srinivasa Perumal leaves for the Theppam.
For the first time, Sri Vedantha Desikar Devasthanam is organising a Theppotsavam. This will be held in an Eri in Karthikeyapuram, Madipakkam.
Temple trustee R. Ananthapadmanabhan told Mylapore Times on Monday that Srinivasa Perumal will leave for Madipakkam just after midnight on Saturday April 1.
Continuing their rich tradition, the Sripatham personnel will carry the lord on their shoulders through the entire 20km procession from Mylapore to Madipakkam and then to Karthikeyapuram.
At the Oppilappan Ramar Temple in Madipakkam, there will be a Thirumanjanam performed for Srinivasa Perumal on Saturday morning.
In the evening, Srinivasa Perumal will provide darshan on the float at the Eri in Karthikeyapuram, Madipakkam.
Following the Theppotsavam, Srinivasa Perumal will start on the return procession from Madipakkam at around 10.30pm on April 1 to reach his abode in Mylapore early morning on Sunday.
