Tens of thousands of pilgrims from various parts of the country on Sunday, witnessed the Makarajyothi , a celestial light that appears on the eastern horizon of Sabrimala Ayyappa temple.
Earlier, the thiruvabharanam (sacred ornaments), which was brought from Pandalam to Saramkuthi, was received by the Devaswom officials. The Makara Jyothi at Ponnambalamedu flickered thrice after the priests adorned the deity with the sacred ornaments and performed deeparadhana.
Heavy rush of devotees was witnessed at the Sannidhanam and Pamba. When the ‘MakaraJyothi" appeared at 6:42 pm, the temple premises reverberated with ‘Sharanam Aiyyappa" chants.
