Kattil Bhagavathy Temple also known as The Kaattil Mekkathil Temple, has thousands of devotees who come from all over the country come to the tree to tie the sacred bells given to them from the temple.
The bells are blessed by the temple priest and given to the devotees for Rs 30 per piece. The temple also holds a “12 vilakku utsavam”, a festival lasting 12 days during which time devotees live on the temple premises in makeshift huts.
The devotees go round the tree seven times before they tie the bell onto it. At the seventh round, they make a wish and it considered to be fulfilled.
