The temple premise is flooded with women, the roads and lanes that stretch to Attukal are lined with festival time vendors who make a living selling curios and essentials for pongala, besides all you can watch the Theruvilakku or Vilakkukettu processions that move in the night with resounding chenda melam or meyyandi melam, its festive air every where.
