Masi Makam or Masi Magam is an essential celebration among the Tamilians. The celebration falls in the Tamil Month of Masi (February – March). In 2017, Masi Makam is on March 11. This year it is the Mahamaham. Maham or Makam is one among the twenty-seven stars in the auspicious framework. The makam star in the Masi month ordinarily falls on the full moon day and is considered exceedingly promising in many temples across South India, particularly in Tamil Nadu, Puducherry (Pondicherry) and Kerala.
