Thattayath Kalari Bhagavathy Temple Trust

Prathiishta Dinam

Supposed to be the birthday of Kalari Bhagavathy. 

Earlier Medam 18 or 1st of May was considered as the birthday. But after Thambulaprasnam which was conducted in the temple as part of the renovation done in 2015, 

the birth date got altered to the day of

 Makayiram star during the month of Idavam. 

Sankranthi Pooja

This pooja is performed on the 1st day of every Malayalam month. 

Temple opens on that day at 6.30 am, and closes around 9 am, after all poojas. 

All 12 Poojas have been booked by Families of each thavazhi of Thattayath Tharavad.

Mandala Pooja

Pertains to poojas performed during Mandala season, dedicated to Lord Ayyappa.

This starts on the 1st of Malayalam month Vrischikam, which falls in the middle of November.

Mandala Pooja is performed for 41 days. Anybody can participate, by registering their names and Star during the 41 days of poojas. All these 41 days only basic  Poojas are done which lasts for approximately 1 hour. 

On the 41st day, detailed poojas with offerings take place. This is the only day, Poojas and offerings for Nagas, Naga Raja, and Naga Yakshi are performed.

All Poojas will be over by 1pm, and it is beleived that all should leave the premises immediately.

Sunday Pooja

This is a special pooja, similar to Sankranthi Pooja, but performed on all Sundays only. 

The motive behind this special function is the long pending request from our family members for an opportunity to conduct poojas, especially when there are only 12 months and all have been booked by family members since the inception of this Temple.

Secondly, this helps our family members to meet each other and spend some time together which in turn will strengthen the family bonds and stay united.

Ashtadhravya Maha Ganapathi Homam

Ashtadravya Ganapathi Homam is a procedure to perform the special puja to seek blessings from Lord Ganesha by offering eight sacred items.

The Ashtadravya Ganapathi Homam is the best solution for all your obstacles and problems. It is believed sacred to perform Ashtadravya Ganapathi Homam on your Janma nakshatra every year. 

The people who go through various obstacles and difficulties in their life, for the welfare of their life, major surgery, Ganapathi Homam, is performed. 

Kalari Pongala

The name ‘Ponkala’ means “to boil over”Ponkala is a religious festival performed to appease the Goddess of the Temple. 

At our Kalari, with the advice & consent of our Thanthri Thirumeni, we introduced Ponkala for our Amma, the  ‘Raktheswari’ of Kalari, on 11th March 2022.  

Our Family members accepted the pooja and offering rituals wholeheartedly. The huge attendance recorded was clear evidence of the same.  This year, 2023, we conducted the ritual on March 1. 

A total of 106 participants showed up, which was an increase of 54% over last year.

Mahanavami / Vijayadasami Pooja

On Maha Navami, Goddess Durga is worshipped as Mahisasuramardini. It is believed that on Maha Navami day Durga killed the demon Mahishasura.

On this day Durga is blessed in the form of Saraswathi, who is considered the Goddess of knowledge and wisdom

It is also believed that worship done on this day is equal to the worship done on all the other 9 days of Navarathri.

Vijayadashami is celebrated as the victory of Lord Rama over Demon Ravana and also a triumph of Goddess Durga over the Demon Mahishasura
