Visuals of ceremonial procession of 'thiruvaabharanam', started from Pandalam Palace, reaching the hilltop Sabarimala temple.Thiruvabharanam, the divine and sacred ornaments of Lord Ayyappa to adorn the Lord during the celebrations of 'Makaravilakku' (Makarasankranthi day), the grand finale of the pilgrimage period.The precious and holy jewelry are kept in three wooden boxes and consist of a diamond diadem, gold bracelets, necklaces embedded with precious gems, swords, silver arrows and images of elephant, horse and leopard, all fashioned out of gold. The eldest member of the erstwhile Pandalam Royal family (known even now as Pandalam Raja or Valiya Thamburan!) leads the procession. Devotees in large numbers throng the temple and all along the procession routes to have a glimpse of the sacred boxes. Special poojas are conducted, 'prasad' distributed and 'vibhuti' offered to all, including those who carry the heavy boxes (they too observe strict austerities), The Raja then blesses the procession and, as a mark of delegation of his authority, hands over the ceremonial sword to his representative or envoy to escort the thiruvabharanam to Sabarimala Temple. The persons who carry the boxes then go round the temple three times before beginning their journey on foot to Sabarimala.
