There are several types of kavadi, like rose water kavadi, milk kavadi etc. The kavadi bearers wear normally yellow dress and walk hundreds of miles on foot. Practically they dance to the tunes of instrumental music throughout and reach the temple after days of journey. On reaching, they redeem the vow in strict accordance with agama in tenets. Realising the multifarious benefits it showers, all classes of people take vows to offer this ardeous prayer service. It is estimated that during Tahaipusam more than a lakh kavadis come from different places. 

It is indeed a fascinating spectacle to watch the kavadi bearers pass through the roads. Pious people lining the entire route enthuse them by offering drinks, in token of their appreciation and devotion. This colourful procession does not confine to particular .day, but on several festival days, this tradition surfaces and delights both the beholders and bearers. The sounds of 'Harohara' let out by the kavadi bearers certainly awaken the kailasa vasivs, specially his loving parents who enjoy the sight of their favourite's glory with eyes wide open and heats overflowing with joy.
