Hosting many mega events like Sarpabali Maha Yajna and series of Devapurana Yajnas throughout the year, Sree Nagraja Temple is often found well-crowded. The flow of visitors gets increased day by day and hence it is extremely difficult to accommodate the amassing devotees within the temple premises. In order to manage it properly, the temple authorities have decided to build a new structure for the Annadanamandapam so that all the devotees can have the prasadaoottu unto their contentment. Same is the case with a new building for a Yajnamandapam for performing various yajnas all through the year without overlapping.
There is also an urgent need to renovate the whole temple structure to encapsulate the ever-increasing crowd. Since the main deity is swayambhoo serpent mound, Balalaya Prathishta as in the case of man-made installations is not possible here during the construction. So the renovation works in the temple would be all the more expensive and extensive.
This ambitious project cannot be completed merely by depending on the funds of the temple. It needs the generous cooperation of devotees as well.
Pampadi Sree Pampumkaavu
Devapuranayajnas are meant to proclaim the moral and spiritual values of life. Due to his kindness and sympathy toward the fallen souls, Veda Vyasa supplemented the Vedas with Puranas which explain the Vedic truths simply, intended for different types of people. It is the responsibility of every divine place to invoke the latent knowledge within the mundane life of the human beings from time to time. Hence carry out the Purana yajnas.
Sree Nagaraja temple conducts series of Purana Yajnas every year choosing 6 significant sectors out of the 18 Puranas . Ashtadravya mahaganapathi homam using 1008 coconuts, Kalamezhuth, Sarapa paattu, Sree Nagaraja Sangeethotsavam, other temple arts etc are also carried out in this temple premises throughout the year. So we plan for a first-rate podium for the Yajnacharyas to perform the parayana and interpretation as well as a spacious audience hall for the devotees to make the divine rituals a heavenly experience.
Prasada oottu is the offering given to the Naga Gods and devotees receive it with utmost reverence as God’s blessing. Breakfast Prasada is special to Sree Nagaraja Temple. As the number of devotees increases every year, an Annadanamandapam to accommodate everyone is found to be the need of the hour.
