The Annadanam Sabha is pleased to render annadanam service to the public within the Temple premises of Śrī Theivayanai Amman, the presiding deity who is Annapoorani – the Great Giver of Food. This tradition is highlighted with the sharing of food. A unique feature of the annadanam is its being served the traditional way–on plantain leaves–to devotees of all communities, including service personnel.

The Annadanam Sabha is coordinated by S.T.S. Arulananthan, J.P. and A. Maduraiveeran, ably assisted by eminent persons from Colombo, Matale, Kandy, Batticaloa, Vavuniya, and Trincomalee, including Messrs. Swaminathan Karuppaiah, Shanmugarajah, and T. Rajah, to mention only a few of 300 annadanam contributors. Praise is also owed to the energetic service rendered by a volunteer force of youth from all over the island led by Ramesh Babu.

Śrī Theivayanai Amman Temple, Kataragama is offering annadanam of pure vegetarian food to the public during the Kataragama Esala Festival from the flag-hoisting ceremony until the concluding water-cutting ceremony.

Śrī Theivayanai Amman gives yearly once darshan to devotees during the night of the Maha Perahera (Adi full moon).
