  CHENGANNUR - BHAGAWATHI AMBALAM

To mark this event, Triputtu Arattu-bathing ceremony is conducted regularly since then. On account of the occurrence of this here, the Panhaloha Vigrah representing her figure menstruates even today. So the tradition is maintained with great reverence. Normally the priest who attends to the Nirmalaya revoving of the previous day's flowers etc., at the opening of the temple door examines the petticoat of the deity. If he finds the signs of bleeding on the petticoat, it is sent to the priest's house for confirmation by the chief lady the priest's wife. On confirmation, the Srikoil is kept closed for three days. During this period, a small vigraha is installed in a secluded room, and regular worship is offered to it On .the fourth day 'Triputtu' Ceremony-bathing ritual is performed with great fanfare. The image then is taken out to the nearby Pampa river on a elephant. Thousands of devotees, particularly ladies attend this. The returing of this deity to t-he temple is awaited by Lord Parameswar mounted on elephant Receiving her at the portal, they go back to heir respective seats Then regular pujas are conducted. This is a monthly occurrence, vet athikas attach great saucily and celebrate it with utmost devotion if nasthiks belittle it, or deliberately denigrate, they are punished forthwith. History with abundant evidence recorded the consequences of a desecration this practice along with names and dates. Besides the petticoat that bearing the marks of blood was sold in auction, and the bidders being many including intellectuals and officials, it fetched thousands of rupees. Among the buyers, one may surprised to find the names of ex-president V. V.Girl and Sri. C.P. Ramaswamy lyer to quite a few. Can science disregard this tradition? There is an instance of dire consequence faced by an alien mho pooph-popped the tradition deliberately.
