Makara Sankranti Ayyappa Puja 5:30 PM on Saturday, January 14th 2017

While strictly Sankranti or Pongal is a celestial event, we Hindus worship and attribute respect to many things larger than ourselves and those that govern our lives in ways known and unknown.

Ayyappa Puja is conducted at HTCI on Sankranthi Day. Ayyappa who was born in a royal family is attributed royal jewels(thiruvabharanam) taken in a procession.
