A Special feature in Aadipoora Maha Bramotsavam:
Mahasakthi in the form of Universal Mother is the Cause and Protector of the entire creation and our ancestors have glorified Her prowess. In their sincere efforts to revere Amman, they organized various festivals and attained salvation. Kambam Satruthal is one such ancient festival of great significance. The term “Kambam Satruthal” in Tamil translates as “offerings made on a trident-shaped margosa branch – Vembu”. This festival provides a unique opportunity for everyone in the family and society, both the young and old, to participate together. This emphasises the need to preserve family and community cohesion. Similar to the Pookaragam and Agni Kapparai festivals conducted in honour of the Mother Goddess in several Amman temples in the world, the Vembu Amman festival can be compared to the Fire-Walking festival.
Vembu Amman Festival in Our Temple:
With the eternal grace of our Mother Goddess Sree Maha Mariamman, who resides within the artistically constructed holy abode in Singapore crowned with Her 108 Sakthi Kalasams, this colourful festival is made a part of the Aadipooram Maha Brahmotsavam, which is celebrated as the grandest event in the Calendar of Events of the Temple.
