As this event coincides with Mahashivratri, the town is abuzz with double the fervour. Carnatic music fills the air and a special tribute is paid to Lord Shiva for over five days. A Muslim teacher of dance initiated this festival and it still lives on, integrating itself with Chidambaram’s identity.
