BULLOCK CART

Image ID: 177899846

Caption : UDUMALPET, TAMIL NADU, 20/8/2016: Pilgrims return home after the pilgrimage at Thirumoorthy Hills near Udumalpet in Tamil Nadu. Adi Amavasai (July-August) is a special day for those who live around Thirumoorthy hills, near Udumalpet, Tiruppur district. On this auspicious day, a stream of bullock carts makes its way to the temple of Sri Amanalingeswarar on the hills. Residents of at least 45 hamlets — Kurichikottai, Pollachi, Madathukulam and Devanurputhur and suburban areas of Kerala’s Palakkad district — go uphill to perform pooja at the age-old temple. The journey to Sri Amanalingeswarar begins a day prior to Adi Amavasai. Devotees and their cattle camp near the Thirumoorthy dam. Pilgrims such as Sivamani (from Krishnapuram) and Raja (from Pollachi) believe that the deity will protect their livestock from diseases. They also journey to Thirumoorthy hills on this day to worship their ancestors. After a dip in the waters of the reservoir, the pilgrims offer food and prayers to their predecessors. Animals hold centre stage on this day of prayers and festivities. The bullocks are bathed, decorated and their horns, in some cases, are also coloured. They walk to the shrine with the owners, and get a share of the food offered to the deity. Some of the young bullocks are used for racing, a practice common in parts of Tamil Nadu. Their special diet includes cotton seeds. The others are used for ploughing and as a means of transport. Photo: K. K. Mustafah
