Nel Pori and Aval Pori for Karthigai Deepam – Bangalore

Posted on Nov 17 2015 - 1:15pm by Swathi

The month of Karthigai / Karthika masam has its own significance and importance.For people belonging to Telugu origin Karthika somaravarams are important.Belief is that if a deepam is lit in a shiva temple on a karthika somavaram all our sins will be lost.For Tamilians it is important because Karthika deepam festival falls on this month.As soon as we hear this the first thing that comes to our mind is deepam at Tiruvannamalai.This festival is celebrated with pomp and glory in the temple town of Tiruvannamalai which includes celebrating Brahmotsavams for 10 days.On the day of Karthika Deepam, Bharani Deepam is lit in the morning around 4-6 am.Since Bharani is the star before Kruthika the deepam is lit during this star it is named as Bharani Deepam.In the evening a Nei deepam is lit post which all the people in tamil nadu light the lamps and decorate their houses with lamps colorfully.On this day we offer Neivedhyams of Nel pori and Aval pori vurundai,Appam for the god.Please refer the below link for the procedure to prepare Neivedhyams.
