Makaravilakku, a lamp lit in the forest areas of Ponnambalamedu on the mountain surrounding the hill shrine, and Makarajyothi, the star that appears in the sky are the highlights of the Makaravilakku festival.
 
The Makaravilakku will appear at around 6.45 p.m. Devotees are allowed in temple till 19th of January. The temple will be closed on 20th at 6.30 a.m. with the conclusion of the Makaravilakku festival season.
