What is the fee for doing pooja at Siddhar Peetam?
Basically there is no fee for doing daily pooj at Melmaruvathur Siddhar Peetam. Doing pooja (prayers) in Melmaruvathur Siddhar Peetam is different from all other Hindu Temples. The devotees basically enter the Temple (Peetam) and go through line which takes them around Saptha Kanniar Kovil (Temple of Seven Virgin Mothers), Putru Mandapam (Hall of Snake Pits), and then to Moolasthaanam (Karuvarai) (Sanctum Sanctorum) where Mother AadhiParaaShakti is consecrated. You move along with the line getting dharshan of the Mother. If you have any offerings like flowers, fruits, coconut or other pooja samagiris, these can be handed over to the volunteers near Karuvarai. For festivals like Thai Poosam devotees are allowed to enter Karuvarai and perform abishekam to Swayambhu by themselves.
