Scroll down for Pournami (Full Moon) and Sivaratri GiriValam dates and timings.

As we have mentioned before, those who cannot be in Arunachala at the times shown below can do Giri Valam around other sacred hills such as Thiruparankundram, Thidiyan Malai, Karur Thaanthondrimalai, Palani, Trichy RockFort, Rathnagiri Aiyarmalai, Kundrakudi, Thirukachoor (near Chennai), Thirukazhukundram, Parvatha Malai, Thirumayam, etc. and the MahaMaham sacred pond in Kumbakonam.

But, needless to say, being in Arunachala is something special of course!

Sivaratri occurs every month.
More precisely, as Sathguru Venkataraman pointed out,
Shivaratri occurs every night (Nitya Shivaratri),
every fortnight (Paksha Sivaratri),
every month (Maasa Sivarathri) and
every year (Maha Sivarathiri).

Monthly Sivaratri GiriValam - on the night preceding the New Moon Night.

Monthly Pournami GiriValam - on the night of the Full Moon.

Every moment of every day is a good moment for Arunachala Girivalam.
REPEAT! Every moment of every day is a good moment for Arunachala Girivalam.
