Attukal Pongala

Attukal Pongala is an annual congregation of women to offer Pongala at the Attukal temple and in the city of Trivandrum- an offering of boiled rice in earthern pot - during the Malayalam month of Kumbham (February-March). Attukal Pongala has become a symbol of devotion and dedication to Devi, the Mother goddess and above all a celebration of womanhood.
