Thousands of devotees from different parts of the country offered worship at the hill shrine in Sabrimala during the ‘Makara Samkrama puja’ on Monday evening, marking the finale of the two-month-long pilgrimage to the famous Lord Ayyappa temple.

Makara samkramam is considered as an auspicious moment when the sun moves from ‘Dhanu rasi’ to the ‘Makara rasi’.Thousands of pilgrims had reached and camped atop the hill in make-shift tents and shacks, with devotees from Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka forming a major chunk.

Police, armed commandos, RAF, disaster management contingent and other state agencies including doctors and paramedics had made elaborate arrangements for the smooth conduct of the final phase of the pilgrimage.
