Pradosham at Gangai Amman Koil (Ekkaduthangal)

21012016I totally forgot that today is Pradosham. When casually browsing through Whatsapp messages I found in one group there was a message about Pradosham.

So today evening at 5.30 made a visit to my nearby Shiva temple. The presiding deity of the temple is Gangai Amman. There are sanctum sanctorums for the following deities:

  1. Lord Ayyappa
  2. Lord Anjaneya
  3. Lord Shiva (and Lord Nandhi)
  4. Lord Srinivasa
  5. Lord Subramaniya
  6. Lord Ganapathi

The Pradosham function went till 6.30 (with Abhishekam, deity procession and prasadam distribution) and then I started back home by 6.45. The easier way to reach this temple is as below:

  1. Get down at Ambal Nagar bus stop (towards Ashok Nagar)
  2. Either take Ambal Nagar Main Road and turn left at dead end and walk straight and you will reach the temple near the police outpost near Poonamalee Road junction.
  3. Walk a few yards and turn left at Poonamalee Road (near Church). Continue walking till Police Outpost and you will see the temple to the left.
  4. Bus Route: S35 (towards Defence Colony) and Bus Stop is Gangai Amman Koil Street.
