Amma Mandapam is a ghat on the Kaveri River’s banks where devotees come to bathe according to customs. Many devotees come here to take a swim before entering the adjacent temples, and some come to perform the final rites of their loved ones who have died. The holy waters of the Kaveri are mentioned in many ancient scriptures and poems, and it is thought that taking a plunge in them might help individuals achieve moksha.
The location is extremely significant during the yearly Aadi Perukku festival, when thousands of devotees flock here to take a plunge before continuing their day with sacred ceremonies and poojas. Visitors can currently use the safety barricades and even the taps. If you don’t want to take a dip, come to the ghat early in the morning or at dusk to enjoy the tranquilly of the gorgeous Kheerganga.
