The festival of Māci makam in Pondicherry
18 FEBRUARY 11
Festive bathing when the full moon is in the constellation of Maghā is alluded to already by the poet Ñānacampantar (Jñānasambandha, C7th-C8th?, Tēvāram 2.47.6). Every year the festival draws a large crowd to the beach of Vaittikkuppam, to the North of the city of Pondicherry.
