  ELAVAHPURHE KAVU - BHAGAWATHI AMBALAM

Besides the regular rituals the odd tradition of 'Thookain' is offered to the deity by fairly a large number of devotees. It is a unique custom of lifting the body of the devotee on a hook fixed into the skin on his back and taking him round the Srikoil.

It is offered in reademption of vow taken to Mother Bhagawati for the preferring immense relief. Hence the continuation of its implementation. If belief fetches tangible benefit, people neither care for the scientists, pooh poohing, nor resorting to other practices given wide publicity by the vested interests. This age old convention deserves approbation even by the atheists, says a local vociferously backed by personal observation.

It lies 21 kin off Alwaye, accessible by bus.
