Tamil Nadu, a state in southern India, is renowned for its fervor in celebrating the festival. During the fortunate month of Maargazhi, the festival honoring the idol Lord Shiva is held specifically on Arudra or Thiruvaathirai nakshatram day. Arudra nakshatra coincidentally falls on full moon day or Pournami during the Maargazhi month, giving this festival extra significance.

Tamil people celebrate Arudra Darshan on this day in honor of Lord Shiva. During Maargazhi Masam, Arudra Nakshatram, also known as Thiruvaathirai Nakshatram, is thought to be extremely auspicious. Pournami and Arudra Nakshatra both fall on this day.

During Arunodaya, the Nataraj form of Lord Shiva is worshipped alongside sacred Vedic chanting on this particular day. This day, which is dedicated to Lord Shiva in his Nataraj avatar, is also regarded as his birthday. Maha Shivaratri, which is celebrated throughout the rest of India, is observed as Lord Shiva’s birthday.
