The “women’s Sabarimala” is another name for the Attukal temple. For their family’s peace and prosperity, millions of women cook the Pongala in honor of their beloved deity, Attukal Bhagavathy. Devotees in “Pongala” cook a mixture of rice, jaggery, and scraped coconut in pots on improvised brick stoves. As a growing number of followers arrive in the nation’s capital, the authorities have put intricate plans in place, including stringent adherence to green procedure, security measures, and limitations on traffic. Attukal Pongala is not only a beloved custom but also a symbol of harmony, faith, and group devotion since the surrounding churches, temples, and mosques all assist with the ceremony each year.
