ALLEPPY - MULLAKKAL AMBALAM

temples of Kerala. Its fame mainly rests on the Mandala Chirappu which is being
celebrated on a scale grand and pomp enviable. The people's lusty participation
in this lasting for nearly twelve days speaks the glorious traditions it has established
and reputation built up. It begins on the first of Vrischigam, when
the temple is given face lift and the entire region' wears festive look. Several
kinds illuminations, processions in gaily decorated palanquins with sound and
music make the holy kshetra into Bhuloka Swarga, says the Sethalaganga. This
temple ranks very high due to this grandiose colourful celebration and won
laurels to the organisers. The icon of Bhagavathi is quite mesmerising and
wrings veneration due to marvelous decoration by the consummate artistry of the

people await n with great expectation.
