Theivanai Amman Devasthanam Annadanam Sabha

The annadanam sabha is pleased to render annadanam service to the public within the temple premises of Sri 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 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 Arulannthan, 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.
