The Jagadguru recalled His visits to the other temples in the past, including the visits to and Pujas performed at the temples of Tiruchendur and Palani during the present Vijaya Yatra. The Jagadguru expressed joy that the Vijaya Yatra at Tamil Nadu would be completed after having Darshan of Sri Subrahmanya Swamy at Tiruttani the following day.

The Jagadguru also went to the top of the temple for Vimana Darshanam and to look at the efforts being taken for the construction of the Raja Gopuram. The authorities received the Jagadguru’s blessings for the efforts being taken for erecting the Raja Gopuram. Alighting from the hillock, the Jagadguru gave Darshan to the devotees.
