Paraveppu is a ritual performed in Hindu homes in connection with temple festivals. The para (wooden/brass measure) full of paddy is arranged in front of the house along with the lighted lamps and other offerings such as fruits and jaggery. The offerings are collected during the procession, with the elephants carrying the thidampu (idol of the deity of the temple).
