Allur Jallathiru Vizha

Allur Jallathiru Vizha is a religious festival celebrated by the women folk of Tiruchirapalli, Tamil Nadu. On Purattasi Amavasya, the women folk in the region give money to the potter and ask him to make images of cow and calf for puja. They collect it on the same full moon day next month and worship it for 9 days, chanting religious hymns and songs for the images. On the 10th day, the Kolatam dance will be performed and the images of cow and calf are taken in a procession to the banks of the Cauvery River for submersion.

They also make sweet Pongal and distribute to one and all the same type at Jallatharai, and places at Madurai, Tirunelveli, and Chinnamanur.
