The Chariot festival of the historic Aathy Konanyakar Temple in Thampalakamam was held with religious fervor. A number of male and female devotees from Trincomalee and Muthur districts participated at the festival.
The deity Hamsanambigai Sameda Konanayakar deity placed on the Chariot was taken on a procession along the outer Veethy amidst chanting of Lord Siva hymns. School girls danced as they welcomed the deities.
