About 2022- Meenakshi Thirukalyaanam and Tamil New Year...:

The Pandya king Malayadhwaja and his wife Kanchanamala performed a yagya praying for a successor....

Goddess Meenakshi, an incarnation of Goddess Parvathi came out of the sacrificial fire as a three year old girl......

She became the queen of Madurai and married Lord Shiva there.......

Lord Shiva is Lord Sundareswara in Madurai...

The celestial wedding happens in Madurai as part of the 16-17 days long Chitra festival (april,may).....

This year it falls on April 14th which happens to be the auspicious Tamil New Years Day aswell......

Let the GRAND LADY bless us all on this important divine day.....
