Skanda Sashti, which is also called Kanda Sashti, is the most important Lord Murugan holiday. Most Tamil Hindus take part in Skanda Sashti. Skanda Sashti happens on the sixth day of Karthika Masam, which is based on the lunar month.
During Kanda Sashti, devotees fast for six days. They start on the first day of the Karthika lunar month, which is called Pirathamai, and end on the sixth day, which is called Soorasamharam. Soorasamharam is the most important and last day of the six-day celebration. People think that Lord Murugan beat the demon Surapadman on the same day, and the Soorasamharam festival is held every year to celebrate the triumph of good over evil.
It’s important to remember that Soorasamharam Vratam is done on the day when Shasti Tithi and Panjami Tithi come together. Since Shasti Tithi starts before sunset on Panjami Tithi, most temples do Kanda Sashti on Panjami Tithi.
The most well-known one is Kanda Sashti at Thiruchendur Murugan Temple. On Soorasamharam day, the six days of celebrations that begin on Pirathamai of Karthika Masam come to an end. On the day after Soorasamharam, Thiru Kalyanam is held.

Importance of Soorasamharam:
For Tamils, Soorasamharam has a lot of religious meaning. Hindu texts like the “Skanda Purana” talk about how important this day is. According to Hindu mythology, Surapadma and other demons beat the Devas and took over the earth. Then they went around spreading Adhrama.
Lord Murugan, who is the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, showed up as the leader of the Devas to stop this. Lord Murugan and Surapadma fought for six days, and on the last day, Lord Murugan used his “Vel” to kill Surapadma. From then on, people often called this event “Soorasamharam.” The day’s celebrations mean that all bad things are coming to an end.
Rituals during Soorasamharam:
- The fasting from the Skanda Sashti festival also lasts until the day of Soorasamharam. The person who does this vrat can only eat one meal a day. The fast ends the next day, which is called “Thirukalyanam.”
- On this day, Lord Murugan temples hold special ceremonies. People come from all over to see their god’s “Abhishekam,” which is followed by “Shringar darshan.”
- In some places, like Palani, huge statues of Lord Murugan are taken out of the temple and paraded all over the town.
- On the day of Soorasamharam, the victory of Lord Murugan over Surapadma is played out again in the Tiruchendur Murugan Temple. Thousands of devotees from Tamil Nadu and the states around it come to this ceremony.
