To make this triptich complete after Devotion, The Family, you got of course The Enlightenment.
After a prayer to Hanuman people walk around this pillar several times and they do that with all the shrines of Gods wherever possible also in the Meenakshi Temple.
I noticed they always walk around clockwise, innatural as a fact it is more natural to walk counterclockwise, think at all the sports evenements in arena's. Let's say it is Devine to circle clockwise and prescribed by the Veeda's.
Ever asked yourself why a clock turns in a innatural way around ?
Practical: don't ever lean with your shirt to a pillar in this place as people put the Devine red powder to the statue and all the pillars and you will get a red shirt.
