Makara Jyothi

Makara Jyothi is a celestial star which is worshiped as a part of ritual in Sabarimala Temple in the day of Makara Samkranti (Winter solstice). Sabarimala Makara Jyothi is a natural light that appears three times at the time of Deeparadhana on the eastern horizon at Ponnambalamedu hills.

Makaravilakku was a fire lit by human hand on the hill neighbouring Sabarimala while the Makarajyothi was a star that appeared in the evening sky on the day marking the culmination of the annual festival. This event marks the culmination of the long and arduous pilgrimage to Sabarimala.

The huge crowds who witness the favourable event has been on the rise every year.
