MOTHER KALI OF KODUNGALLUR

 

The senior Raja of Kodungallur standing on the platform in front of the eastern portico spreads out a green umbrella signifying the time for entering into the temple for Darshan. The waiting devotees rush in and avail the Darshan and receive prasadam. On the Bharani day, at about 3 AM the non-Brahmin priest enters the Srikoil and offers pujas with payasam made specially for this. Then follows the offering of cocks along with other puja materials.

Several rituals follow on Karthika day, the ninth day of Bharani. The temple hitherto polluted with the entry of non brahmin priests, receive purificatory rites in well swept and neatly kept shrines, niches and their surroundings. Once again Nambudris hold their sway and perform routine services. Devotees offering prayers receive prasad before departure. 

The Bharani festival falling in March-April is the time for special prayers to MOTHER Kali for good rains to start their agricultural operations. So lacks of people congregate, offer prayers and participate in this festival with full gusto. The temple town thus goes gay for about a month during this festival.  It is a miss not time! A grand occasion!! And a soul-lifting experience.
