Mannarasala Ayilyam - 2022

 Nov 16th      Alappuzha

The temple, dedicated to serpent gods is also unique in that a Brahmin woman is the priestess of this temple. One of the major highlights of the festival is the procession in which all the serpent idols in the temple and the sacred grove are taken to the illam (the Brahmin ancestral home) that manages the temple. The priestess will carry the idol of Nagaraja, which is the presiding deity of the temple. Special prayers and offerings are performed at the illam.
