Makara Jyothi

Makara Jyothi is a light of amazing magnificence, which appears in the north-eastern side of Sabarimala Temple, at Kantha Malai peaks on Makar Sankranti Day. It is believed that Lord Ayyappa was born on the auspicious day of Makar Sankranti.

Devotees believe that Lord Ayyappa appears in the form of the light to bless them on that day. A special puja is organized by devotees all over the world to commemorate the occasion which is known as the annual Makaravilakku Puja.
