Kottiyoor Ulsavam or Kottiyoor Vysakha Mahotsavam
is a 27-day annual pilgrimage observed by Hindus
commemorating the Mythology of Daksha Yaga. The pilgrimage is
similar to the Kumbh Mela of Prayag, where ablutions are performed.
The Vysakha Mahotsavam is a yearly pilgrimage like the Hindus'
Sabarimala Pilgrimage or the Muslims' Hajj Pilgrimage, where devotees,
travelling from multiple locations, go en masse to a shrine at a
specific period of time during the year. The temple and grounds are
also known as Dakshina Kasi.
