KERALA FAIRS & FESTIVALS
The ten day Pongala festival held at Attukal Bhagavathy Temple, 2 km from Thiruvananthapuram, attracts thousands of female devotes from manay parts of the country. Men are not allowed in the vicinity of the temple during the Pongala. Pongala is a kind of sweet porridge, considered to be the goddess favourite offering. It is cooked by each devotee in a day pot on an open fire and the long line of women making the ritual offering extends up to East Fort and beyond.
