Monthly Ayilya Festival

When Lord Maha Vishnu, who sleeps on the divine serpant Adhishesha, has taken the avatar of Lord Rama, Adhishesha has born as Rama’s brother Lakshman. Lakshman’s birth star is Ayilya. So every month the day of Ayilya star, special poojas are performed for Sree Nagaraja, who is the feature of Adhishesha. People affected with Naga dosha and Raahu and Kedhu doshas offer Milk anoint (Paalabishegam) and they offer Paal Payasam to Sree Nagaraja. At night in the inner sanctum of the shrine there will be “Swami Eluntharulal”. This festival takes part in every month on the day of Ayilya star.
