RATH YATRA, 2011

The ‘Chariot festival’ or Ratha Yatra literally means journey by chariot. The Rath Yatra festival, literally translated as Rath: meaning chariot; and Yatra: meaning pilgrimage is an annual Hindu temple festival. The festival celebrates excursion of Murugan with valli deivanai on a brilliantly decorated chariot with pomp and gaiety and this year hundreds of devotees who converge on the occasion from all over United Kingdom.

Lord Murugan represents the “Gnana Shakthi” or “Power of knowledge”.

Lord Muruga is worshipped as Kumaraswami or Kumara Swamy (Bachelor God) during his bachelorhood. According to Puranas, Murugan Swami is married to two deities – Valli and Deivayanai.


Goddess Valli is the daughter of Nambi Raj (Nambirajan), the King of a Mountain tribe. Valli in her previous birth was the daughter of Lord Vishnu and did several penance in her previous birth to become to daughter of Subramanya. Goddess Valli depicts the “Ichha Shakti” or “Power of Aspirations”. The wedding of Valli to Lord Subramanya is called “Valli Kalyanam”. It is said that after Valli Kalyanam Lord Muruga and Goddess Valli moved to Tiruthani Murugan Temple, one of the Arupadaiveedu of Muruga, located at Tiruttani, 50 km north of Chennai, Tamil Nadu. Valli Kalyanam is celebrated as an annual festival in all Lord Subramanya Temples on the Vaikasi Visakam day.


Goddess Deviyani


Deviyani (Deivanai) is the daughter of Lord Indra, the King of Heaven. Goddess Deivayanai represents ‘Kriya Shakthi’ or the “Power of Actions”. It is said that the celestial wedding of Lord Murugan and Deivayanai took place at one of the Arupadaiveedu, the Thirupparamkunram Murugan Temple, in Tiruparankunram, 5 miles from Madurai in Tamil Nadu. Panguni Uthram festival is celebrated in all Lord Murugan Temples to commemorate this auspicious occasion.








Skanda – also known as Murugan, Kartikeya, Subramanya is one of the most revered deities in the southern state of Tamilnadu. It is even said that the name Murugan is synonymous to the world Tamil.
