The annual chariot festival, therthiruvizha, of the historic Nallur Kandasamy Kovil attracted thousands of devotees to Jaffna on Sunday.

The most popular fixture of the month-long thiruvizha or annual festival, the chariot festival sees the Tamil-Saivite deity Murugan paraded through the streets of Nallur.

Thousands of devotees from across the Tamil homeland and diaspora, as well as tourists, flock to Jaffna for the annual festival.
