This ritual is very important in town. The area around the temple within a radius of about 2kms will be totally occupied by local women, setting up cooking facility, cooking rice and jaggery as an offering to the goddess. This is practiced by women to get the blessing for the family. Think about ten thousands of women occupying the main street, pavements, local households, open areas, gardens ... it's a spectacle event. men are not allowed anywhere near this area, unless part of social organizations usually help these women with drinking water and transport arrangements.
The priest does his rituals inside the temple and sprinkles water over the offering cooked by these women from helicopter!!
This ritual falls on a specific date according to malayalam calender. Usually between Feb and Mar every year.
