Author :          

Sabarimala: The abode of Lord Ayyappa here witnessed heavy rush on the first day of the Makaravilakku festival on Wednesday. The rush continued to the new year day too. Pilgrims had to wait for hours together inside the thickly packed barricades before ascending the 18 steps to the temple premises Melsanthi E.N. Krishnadas Namboodiri opened the sanctum sanctorum at 4 am on Wednesday and the rituals began with the Ashtadravya Ganapati homom and Ashtabhishekom, followed by Neyyabhishekom to the presiding deity.

Tantri Kandararu Rajeevararu, assisted by the Melsanthi, performed the Brahmakalasapuja in the forenoon as part of the Kalabhabhishekom prior to the Utchapuja.
