History of Makaravilakku-Makarajyothi

There are different stories associated with makaravilakku-makarajyothi. One popular legend is that Ayyappa, after defeating the devil mahishasura, merged with the dharma shastha murti at the Sabarimala Lord Ayyappa Temple on the Makarajyothi day. This makarajyothi is considered as the star that appears on the sky during puja but makaravilakku is a jyothi that appears at ponnambalameddu 3 times on makar sankranthi day usually after the evening puja.

Makara Vilakku

The most important festival at the Ayyapppa temple on Sabarimala is Makara Vilakku. It is a seven-day festival, beginning on the day of Makara Sankranthi, the day when the sun is in summer solstice. According to legend, the idol of Dharma Shastha was enshrined in the temple on this day. The annual festivities of Makara Vilakku commemorate this sacred event.

The jewellery to adorn the idol during the celebrations is brought from Pandalam Palace in a ceremonial procession that starts from Valiya Koyikkal Sastha Temple at Pandalam, three days prior to Makara Sankranthi. The boxes containing the sacred jewels are borne by an oracle; the procession reaches Sabaripeettam in the evening on Makara Sankranthi and is led to the Sannidhanam to the accompaniment of lights and music. Incidentally, a kite appears in the sky at this very moment and hovers around the boxes, as if to safeguard the precious cache comprising a diamond diadem, gold bracelets and necklaces embedded with precious gems, Lord's swords, silver arrows and images of elephant, horse and leopard fashioned out of gold.

Another highlight of this festival is the appearance of Makarajyothi that leaves an indelible impression on the millions who view it. The poojas and rituals associated with Makara Vilakku are performed on the Manimandapam (sacred platform) adjacent to the Devi's shrine. A picture depicting Lord Ayyappan on the back of a tiger is placed on the podium.

Afterwards, Malikappurathamma is mounted on an elephant's back and taken in a procession of torch bearers, drummers and buglers to Pathinettampadi (18 holy steps). The procession stops abruptly as the Vettavili (call for hunting) is given out and returns, circumambulating the main temple. Makara Vilakku ends with the ritual called 'Guruthi', offering made to appease the god and goddesses of the wilderness. None remains within the temple and its precincts after the 'Guruthi'.

Other important festivals celebrated at the temple include Onam, Mandalapooja and Vishu Vilakku.

Additional parking lots at Nilackal

Though the completion of the additional vehicle parking lots at the Nilackal base camp was expected before the beginning of the pilgrim season, the launching of the project was delayed due to bad weather. This year too, the pilgrims have to satisfy with the vehicle parking space that they had availed during the previous pilgrim season at Nilackal.
Two more vehicle parking lots have been prepared at Nilackal to meet the increasing demand for the same this year.

Resting place for pilgrims

TDB has prepared a 20,000 sq ft area facing the Maramath complex at the Sannidhanam for the pilgrims to use as their resting place during the pilgrim season. The well-designed resting place could accommodate not less than 25,000 people for the Makarajyoti darshan too.
This year, roofing work along the pilgrims’ path from Neelimala to Appachimedu has almost been completed. The queue complexes at Sabaripeedhom and Saramkuthi too have been completed.

Sabarimala Temple
Sabarimala is one of the most famous pilgrim centers of Kerala. This holy shrine at Sabarimala Temple, located atop a hill in the Western Ghats, is dedicated to Lord Ayyappa. Sabarimala is believed to be named after Shabari, who carried out sacrament in order to meet Lord Rama. Every year, two main events take place at Sabarimala Temple, namely, the Mandal Puja and the Makara Sankranti Puja, which begin in the month of November and continue till mid January.

Guruvayoor Temple
It is in Guruvayoor that Sri Krishna Temple is located and is regarded as one of the most sacred and important pilgrim centers of Kerala. Local belief has it that the temple was created by "Guru", the preceptor of the Gods, and "Vayu", the God of winds. This temple alone hosts the maximum number of marriages and rice feeding ceremonies, a ritual of the first meal for infants, in the state of Kerala.

Chottanikkara Temple
Located near Ernakulam enshrines Bhagawati, the mother goddess, lies the Chottanikkara Temple. The deity is one of the most popular in Kerala and it is believed that people suffering from any mental illness are cured after worshipping here. The goddess is worshipped in three different forms - as Saraswati in the morning, clothed in white; as Bhadrakali at noon, dressed in crimson; and as Durga in the evening, clad in blue.

Sri Padmanabhaswamy Temple (Trivandrum)
Sri Padmanabhaswamy Temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The temple is an amazing structure with a 100-feet high 'gopuram', built in Dravidian style. The gold plated idol of Lord Vishnu reclining on the serpent Anantha, made out of a rare composition known as katu sarkara yogam, is considered to be an incredible marvel. The temple is also known for impressive mural paintings and splendid stone carvings.
