Skanda Shashti Utsavam
November 4, 2021 - November 10, 2021Welcome by Donation
Skanda Sashti corresponds to the birth day of Lord Kartikeya or Subramanya also called as Muruga in Tamil. Skanda Sashti is the sixth day (Sashti Tithi) of the Shuklapaksha in the month of Kartika (October – November). Lord Skanda is one of the popular names of Subramanya and therefore the event is called as Skanda Sashti. On Skanda Sashti people observe fasting to propitiate Lord Subramanya. Grand celebrations happen in the temples of Muruga in Tamilnadu.
