On this day, AzhwAr visits appan kOyil which is his actual place of birth. This place is a few kilometers away from AthinAtha – AzhwAr temple at AzhwAr thirungari. Generally, in our sampradhAyam “appan” (father) indicates thiruvEndamudaiyAn (thirumalai appan). The exact place where AzhwAr took birth has a beautiful temple for thiruvEnkatamudaiyAn (srInivAsan). There is a small sannidhi/maNdapam with a raised platform which is where AzhwAr was born. In the evening, AzhwAr is dressed up as thavazhntha kaNNan (crawling krishNa) and returns to his own temple. In the night, he enjoys puRappAdu as usual around the town.
