Makara Jyoti also known as “Light of Capricorn” is worshiped as a part of ritual in Sabarimala Temple on the Makara Sankranti (Makaravilakku) day which falls every year on 14th January.
Devout Hindus believe that the jyothi is a celestial phenomenon and its sighting is auspicious and brings good luck and blessings.
It is believed that Lord Ayyappan asserts himself as Makara Jyothi to bless his devotees.
Devotees from different parts of South India visit the Sabarimala Sannidhanam (Sabarimala Temple) as well as the surrounding hillsides in the forest area to worship the celestial star, Makarajyoti, which appears on the eastern horizon of the Sannidhanam on the Makaravilakku day.
On the day, the sacred jewels from Padalam King Palace are brought to the Sabarimala Temple and idol of Swami Ayyappan will be adorned with ‘Thiruvabharana’ in the evening.
Then Maha Deeparadhana Aarthi of Swami Ayyappa will be performed and during this time the Makara Vilakku will appear thrice at Ponnambalamedu and you can also see the Makara Jyoti.
On seeing the Makara Jyothi, millions of devotees present there chant ‘Swamiyae Saranam Ayyappa’ with great devotion.
