Makarvilakku Festival At Sabarimala Ayappan Temple
One of the most crucial rituals of the Makaravilakku festival is the lighting of the lamp at the Hill of the Golden temple, Ponnambalamedu. The temple is located 4 kilometres from the Sabarimala Ayappan Temple. The light is known as ‘Makara Jyothi’ or ‘Celestial Light.’ The actual process of lighting this lamp needs a large amount of camphor that is placed at the bottom of hill Ponnambalamedu. After the completion of prayers and customs, the man-made lamp is lit by the tribes living in the area and the practice was continued by the Travancore Devaswom Board (TDB), which runs Sabarimala.

What Is The Celestial Significance of Makar Jyoti?
Makar Jyoti means Light of Capricorn. Makaravilakku marks the transition of the Sun from the constellation of Sagittarius or Dhanus to Capricorn or Makara. For many years in the past, the lamp was considered a miracle on the hilltop. It is the start of the Sun’s six-month journey in the northern direction from one constellation to another, and the day on which Sun changes the constellation is called Sankranti in Sanskrit.
