Mandala Mahotsav (16/11/2012 to 27/12/2012)

          Mandala mahotsav includes the 41 days celebrations beginning from the first day of the Malayalam month of Vrischikom. This period is usually observed as the season for the pilgrimage to Sabarimala. Ideally a Vruthum (penance) of 41 days is observed prior to the pilgrimage. During this period, the  devotees lead  simple and pious lives. Devotees from various parts of Kerala come to Sasthamcotta and commence their Sabarimala Vruthum wearing Tulasi or Rudraksha Mala from the temple. People who are unable to visit Sabarimala also come to Sasthamcotta to worship Shri Dharma Sastha as the legend goes that the same divine presence of Sabarimala exists here. At Sasthamcotta temple, Mandala mahotsav is celebrated as ‘Chirappu’ for the 41 days with special poojas, deepakazhcha, niramala and other offerings. Each day of the chirappu is sponsored by devotees. This year Mandala Mahotsav commences on 16th November, 2012.
