Ochira Kettukazhcha

Ochira Kettukazhcha is a spectacular event celebrated at the Ochira Temple in Kollam. This colourful event is marked by a procession carrying huge, highly decorated effigies of Lord Shiva's vehicle 'Nandi'-the bull. The effigies of the pair of bulls are pulled on rathams or wooden carriages by devotees. This fascinating sight attracts scores of people to the temple premises. Here is a video of the Ochira Kettukazhcha held in the Ochira Temple.
