Shisharanni Feast

Shisharanni Feast is celebrated at Shree Mallikarjun Temple at Shristhal in the Canacona county of Goa. In this feast three persons lie down on the ground, stretched from head to foot, with a pot of rice balanced on their heads. Then the blood of a person drawn with the blow of a sword, mixed with rice, is cooked together and the concoction is sprinkled on the devotees present, with a view to seek blessings from God.
