The ten day festival with Amma’s Kootta ezhunnellippu (joint procession) on 8th and 9th day(on Uthrttathi and Revathi nakshtra). The Devi’s of various temples of the region join Valiyakulangara devi in this joint procession. The ‘desa thalappoli’ , Pyro techniques display , light arrangements etc on the 8th and 9th days are an extraordinary and spectacular experience.
On Aswathi nakshatra day ‘Kettukazhchas’ from mainly 4 karas (Areas- Vadakkekara Thekke kara , Puthukkundam and Erikkavu) reaches the presence of Amma. The largest Chariot used to be from Pudukkundam, where traditionally rightful people are there for its creation. Also, 2 from Vadakkekara , 4 from Thekkekkara, 3 from Pudukkundam and one horse each from Pulikkeezhu and Erikkavu are there for Kettukazhcha.
The main attractions of the Aswathy mahotsavam are the 2 warrior horses and a Bull.
On Aswathy day afternoon Amma comes in procession in the ‘Jeevatha’ and sits under the horse to accept ‘Para’. Then Amma invites them (visiting deities) to the show at the paddy field of Pappadi Chal at the east of the temple
Once the horses are lined up in the ‘Pappadi chal’ , Amma invites and accompanies them to the temple. After Amma enters the sanctum sanctorum there is ‘Deeparadhana’ and the fireworks display. All these ritualistic customs are spectacular and is a hair raising experience for a worshipper.
