Vaikasi Visakam is the day of incarnation of Lord Muruga. This occasion remains to be an extraordinary day for Muruga worship. Vaikasi Visakam occurs when the full Moon coincides with the auspicious Vishaka star during the Tamil month of Vaikasi (May–June) and is celebrated with piety and enthusiasm. Muruga is said to have appeared from the flame that emerged out of the third eye of Lord Shiva, principally for annihilating evil and establishing Dharma, the righteousness, on earth. Muruga is the divine son of the supreme God Shiva and the holy mother, Parvati. He is a unique God, a rare combination of high valor and supreme intelligence, and his worship can bestow people with strength, self-confidence, and success. Devotees can offer him prayers, chant hymns in his praise and observe austerities on any day and especially on Vaikasi Visakam, and seek his divine blessings.

Armed with the divine Vel, the lance, provided to him by Parvati, he led an army of celestial beings against the mighty demons and fought and subdued them. It is said that this battle took place in the coastal town of Thiruchendur and Taraka was destroyed in Thirupporur. Muruga was however compassionate towards a repentant Surapadma, converted him into a peacock and a rooster, and accepted both of them, the former as his vehicle and the latter as his flag. The Lord got the resounding victory on a Shasti, the 6th day of the waxing moon in the Tamil month of Aippasi (October–November) and that occasion is observed as Skanda Sashti.
