about ettumanoor mahadevar temple

With an illustrious entrance gate, Ettumanoor Mahadeva Temple is quite eye-catching. This is also an important stopover for the  Sabarimala Ayappa Temple pilgrims. Thousands of pilgrims pay homage to this temple each year. The presiding deity of the temple is Lord Shiva with Goddess Bhagavati. Sastha, Ganesha and Yakhsi are subordinate deities.

Architecture

Built on the Dravidian architectural lines, the interiors of the Ettumanoor Mahadeva Temple are as extravagant as the gate outside. The copper roof especially is an architectural beauty. The outer and inner walls are full of Dravidian mural paintings. The fresco depicting the Dance of Shiva is considered to be one of the best mural painting in India.

Festivals and Rituals

Thulabharam is one of the interesting rituals of Ettumanoor Mahadeva Temple. After a wish has been fulfilled, the person or a child concerned with the said wish is put on a weighing scale and the offerings to the lord (in money, food and clothes) is matched to their weight.

Each year, around February-March, the temple hosts the Arattu festival. On the 8th and 10th day of the celebration, the statue of seven and a half gold elephants donated by the Travancore Maharaja are displayed here. The ritual of offering gold in lieu of petitions is a common practice here. People weigh themselves or the people for whom the petition has been made and offer gold or fruits of the same weight to this temple. Colourful and alluring, Ettumanoor Mahadeva Temple is a must visit.
