The offerings of mothers when their children fall ill and get well prayers offered to the Goddess.

We could see rows of small black bangles here neatly kept on wooden stands.

Behind the temple under a peel tree there is a Naga (Serpent) Parthistha and behind that on an elevated platform there is a Devi (Goddess) image without any roof over it. The Bagawati (Goddess) is revered on a par with the Malikapurthamma in Sabarimala. We could see rows of small black bangles here neatly kept on wooden stands. There are the offerings of mothers when their children fall ill and get well prayers offered to the Goddess.

After the darshan at Achankoil we all assembled on the vast maidan (open space) in front of the temple. It is here that our guruswami formed us into batches of 10 to 12 persons each, with a leader for each group to facilitate an orderly trek through the mountains without any confusion. The leader and nearly half the number of followers were well experienced in the trek and guided others who were first -timers. This arrangement turned out to be a very good one as the less experienced ones were properly guided no one got lost. Each group functioned as a self -contained unit and all the groups joined together at appointed places where camps were set up for stay and rest.
