Pooja Timing



The custom in most of the Temples in Kerala is to have five Poojas and three Sivelis a day. But in Koodalmanikyam there are only three Poojas and no Siveli. There is no Usha Puja and Pantheeradi Puja at this shrine. The diety is taken out for ceremonial procession only during the Annual Festival. There is no Deeparadhana. Sticks and camphor are not used for the pooja. The floral offerings to the diety consist of Lotus, Tulasi(ocimum sanctum) and Chethi(ixora). But they are not grown in the temple compound. No other flower is taken for Pooja or for making garlands.
