Karthigai Deepam wishes from the Czech Honorary Consulate in Chennai

Nov 26, 2023

Karthigai Deepam is an important festival observed during the Tamil month of Karthigai (mid-Nov to mid-Dec). The full moon day of this Karthigai month is called Karthigai Pournami which is widely celebrated. Dedicated to Lord Shiva and Lord Muruga (Kartikeya), Karthigai Deepam is similar to Deepavali, as Devotees light oil lamps to worship & seek blessings

It is believed that on this day, Lord Shiva emerged as a source of unending light to eliminate darkness and evil. Also Lord Muruga came into being only on this day. The Honorary Consulate of the Czech Republic in Chennai conveys our Karthigai Deepam wishes to one & all.
