Sakthi Malai:

Devotees along with their families observe penance and fast for 5 days, and on completion of their fasting, go to the Siddhar Peetam to perform certain religious rituals to the Swayambu. The belief is that this penance will cleanse the soul of its sins. Even women and children are allowed to observe this penance and make the offerings. Several thousands travel by foot (Pada Yathra) to Melmaruvathur while observing this penance to carry out the rituals and improve their family well being.
