Bokkapuram Temple Festival 2024 is all set to begin from February 16 to February 20. Not only Nilgiris people but also people from other districts are excited about this temple festival. It is because this particular temple holds a speciality, and let's see what it is.

Located in the scenic Mudumalai Tiger Reserve forest of the Nilgiris district is the century-old Bokkapuram Mariamman temple. Bokkapuram Mariamman is revered and worshipped by tribals of Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu.

It is customary for devotees to flock to participate in the Bokkapuram Mariamman Chariot festival (Thaer Thirivizha), held annually according to the time-honoured tradition. This festival will not only be enjoyed by the locals but also by the foreigners.

The Bokkapuram Mariamman Temple has an amazing scenic view; many tourists visiting Masinagudi show interest in visiting the temple annually on this occasion. Since resorts surround the temple, every year, we can find people from different regions enjoying and celebrating this tribal temple festival.

The mesmerizing event of this traditional festival is the chariot procession. This is so special because the chariot procession will be accompanied by traditional tribal music. The devotees of different age groups will carry maavilakku and dance traditionally to the music.

The current year's festival will start on February 16 with the hoisting of the flag. Following this, various special worships will be held, such as Thiruvilakku worship to the goddess, Mahadeepharatana with decorations, holy water procession, Maavilakku worship and Poo Karagam and Chariot Procession. Like another predominant temple, Bokkapuram Mariamma Temple has a deep history to treasure.
