At Injaram performs a grand celebrations and spiritual events for Goddess of the Village and it’s belief that village is safe, secure and wishes of everyone will be fulfilled by offering Puja to goddess on this day.
People start the day with a dish that has six tastes including sweet, salt, bitter, spice and so on. At temples, priests will read out the new calendar (we call it Panchanga Sravanam; this will include predictions of the year based on the star.
