Natyanjali dance festival, dedicated to Lord Siva, is held annually at the premises of the Nataraja Temple Chidambaram in a grand scale. Apart from dancers from different parts of India, artists from Sri Lanka, Australia, Canada and Singapore would also participate in this dance festival that commences on the Mahashivaratri day.
