Women’s Day of Festivities during Attukal Pongala, Tomorrow

'Pongala Mahotsavam' is considered a very auspicious and important festival of this temple, which is perhaps one of the oldest temples in South India. The devotees make a dish of rice and jaggery as an "offering" to Goddess Bhagavathy, at the time when the head priest calls out the ' auspicious' time.
