KAVERY SANKRAMAM ON 17.10.2013 AT 11.13 AM

        The Temple Tank of the Makreri Subrahmanya Swami Temple holds the rare distinction of being the only one in Kannur district to be sanctified by the presence of the holy river Kavery at the time of the THULA SANKRAMAM and the eleven days following.Since reaching Makreri temple was not so easy in the past,other temples laid claim to  this honour.  Legend says that Lord Sreeram directed Shri Hanuman to bathe in a small pool of holy water before praying to the lord.Since the dimension of the pool were too small,Lord Hanuman struck his tail on the ground,thus creating a large body of water.The tank of Makreri temple does not conferm to the dimension of other temple ponds that are usually constructed on principles of vastu nor does it lie along a conventional  direction.This fact is considered by devotees to lend support to the legend.. Since the presence  of Kaveri enhances the sanctity of the Makreri temple pond during this period,it is an opportune ideal  time for pilgrims to visit the temple and bathe in the tank before praying to the Lord.By doing so,they will also be following the  directionof LORD  SREERAMA.                                        AJITH PARAMBATH ,EXECUTIVE  0FFICER.
