Today is the auspicious Karthigai Deepam Festival. Want to know about this special day celebrated by Hindus?

Read it on wikipedia at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karthikai_Deepam

I managed to visit Puchong Batu 14 Mariamman Temple for the prayers. Below is a recording of the kummi adithal dance during the prayers.

I’m sure you are aware of the Girivalam at Tiruvannamalai in Tamil Nadu, India which is held during Karthigai Deepam. This is one of the the five holy sites (pancha stalam) whereby Lord Siva is worshiped  as an element (in this case, as fire).
