TIRUVIL WAMALA - THE SEAT OF RAMA & LAKSHMANA

 

FESTIVALS  

Among several festivals celebrated with great éclat, Ekadasi festival takes precedence. It is a 12-day festival luring several thousands of devotees from all parts of the country. It is held in Kumara masa falling in Feb-March. Of the twelve days, Astami, Navami and Ekadasi have greatest pull and are the gala days in the annals of the temple history. The Vilakku-festival of lights, Nirmalas - decorations with flowers, elephant processions and grand feeding programmes are a class in themselves. 

In the past there used to be keen competition among the local chiefs to offer special pujas and distribute palpayasam, Ushapayasam to the visiting Bhaktas. Maharajas of Trivandrum, Zamorins, kings of Cochin were vying with one another in booking number of sevas and spending huge sums. The audio-visual instruments then were turning this hill temple into Bhuloka Swarga. Renowned artistes entertained and are entertaining even today asthika community were their morable performances deeming the opportunity justifies their god-given gifts.
