How to make thirikadugam powder | Trikatu churna | Step by step pictures, procedure

Thirikadugam / trikatu churna ( திரிகடுகம் ) is a wonderful Siddha & Ayurvedic medicine which can be  prepared in our home. Last year, we saw a telecast programme on "Siddha & Ayurvedic medicines" titled as "parambaria maruthuvam"(பாரம்பரிய மருத்துவம் ) in Zee T.V Tamil channel by a well qualified & experienced Doctor Sri.Sakthi Subramanyam. He is continuing it in Sun T.V Tamil channel in the morning 8.30 am - 9 a.m slot.|Now this telecast is not there. His  daughter, also professionally qualified like him, assists him in the demonstration.We thank these two doctors ,who are giving a wonderful demonstration (practical) as well as the remedies for many diseases.

As both this saint & Shiva are one, here for Aani thirumanjanam, & Margazhi thiruvathirai festivals only Manickavasakar is decorated & taken around.The sculptural works are excellent & the "kodungai"  sculptural wo…
