THE FIERCE LORD OF ETTUMANUR

Annual Festival

The annual festival at Ettumanur is in the Malayalam month of Kumbham (February-March). It lasts ten days and is a very major festival in Kerala, like Ashtami festival at Vaikom or Utsavam at Haripad and Ambalapuzha. Though the finale, like all Kerala temple festivals, is the arattu festival on the last day-which comes on Thiruvathira asterism - the eighth day is the most important day of the festival, when devotees throng the temple in their thousands. Especially after midnight on that there is 'Asthana mandapa' darshanam, when the Lord’s image is installed in a specially erected mandapa in the northeast corner. The mandapa is tastefully decorated with flowers,. leaves and red coconuts and the golden !idol glitters in the profusion of lights.
