|The morning rush at the Attukal temple today|
The Attukal temple witnessed a heavy rush right from the early morning today as women continued to flow in for Attukal pongala from different parts of the State. Hundreds of women have occupied their places in the temple premises for setting up the aduppu (oven); they are the early birds flown from distant parts to offer the sacred ritual they have been waiting for. True, it's a celebration of womanhood.
