S abarimala Sannidhanam is all set for this year's annual pilgrimage season, Mandala-Makaravilakku season. ACV has been presenting special programs every year to coincide with the season.
ACV presents a 10 episode series – Sabarimaliyude Puravritham that highlights legends, myths, beliefs and history associated with Lord Ayyappa and the temple at Sabarimala. The programme also highlights the alternate route to Sabarimala, via Kumili and Vandiperiyar and the problems faced by pilgrims taking this route.
One of the episodes discusses the Pulmedu tragedy that occurred in January.
The programme will be telecast on Fridays at 9 p.m. and on Sundays at 9.30 a.m.
