It is said that those who take this food will be cured of stomach diseases.

During Navarathri all instruments that are used for work and study are kept in the temple and special prayers are offered to them.
About The Festival (Legend/History/Myth)
There is a certain relation between the history of Akavoor Mana and the temple formation. Akavoor Manaparambu (the land of Akavur Mana) lies in the Airanikulam village. Brahmins of the Mana were regarded as rules during that period. Years later, a conflict erupted in the family and a section of them moved to Vellarapilly village. But the Brahmins often visited Lord Mahadeva, then known as Airanikulathappan and Sree Parvathi. It is during this period that Akavoor Chathan came to the Mana as a dependent. Seeing one of the Brahmins desiring to visit the Mahadeva Temple, Akvoor Chathan made a boat of granite and used it to transport the Brahmin to the temple. Years went by and the Brahmin grew old.
One day, after his prayers at the temple, he cried to Mahadeva: "Oh my Lord! I have grown too old to come and see you. What shall I do now?" Soon he started his way back home. He lifted his Olakuda (an umbrella made of palm leaf), and found it heavier than it really was, and he told Akavoor Chathan about this experience. But Akavoor did not speak a word. Tavelling on the boat, Brahmin had the call of nature. Akavoor Chathan immediately moved the boat to a nearby land. Then he took his umbrella and to his surprise it seemed very light now. Still Akavoor Asked the Brahmin not to worry about it. After reaching the Manakkal land, the Brahmin got out of it and Akavoor Chathan overturned the boat and it rested in the mud.
Even today one see a granite stone there lying upside down. It came to be known as Chathan Stone. The place mentioned above is where the Thiruvairanikkulam Temple is situated. Earlier it used to be a forest, Pulaya women (women of low caste) used to go there to cleanse the forest. Once, one of the women happened to use the granite stone to sharpen her sickle. All on a sudden, blood started flowing out of the stone and this Pulaya woman lost her mental balance and ran amok. It is said that she ran nearly three kilometers in a frenzy. All the land through which she ran was handed over to the temple authorities by the respective owners. The area is called Varanattu Madam. During the temple festival the poojas are first performed here.
The main Irakki pooja is offered only at the temple and in this place. Nowhere else is this pooja offered. Legend associated with Goddess Parvathi's Sreekovil Formerly it was believed that Goddess Parvathi used to prepare food for Lord Mahadeva in the Thidappilli (temple kitchen) when no one was permitted to be in the kitchen. However, once one of the Brahmins belonging to the Uranmakkar (people who have a right on the temple) set out to find out the secret. Seeing the Goddess in her full attire, he shouted out: "Devi Amma, Devi Jagadambika". Goddess Parvathi saw him and grew angry with him.
She said, "As you have deviated from your usual ways of carrying out the rituals, I am leaving". The Brahmin could not stand it. He cried out and implored the Goddess for mercy. The Goddess said, "From now on, I will make my presence felt only from the twelve days beginning from the Thiruvathira nakshathram in the month of Dhanu, Lord Mahadeva's birthday. And the devotees who see me one of these days will be blessed". It is on this legendary epistle, that the Sreekovil of Goddess Parvathi remains closed. Unlike in other temples the deity is not given Jalabhishekam (a form of pooja in which water is poured over the Idol). Only turmeric powder is used instead of water.
How Festival is Celebrated
Legend has it that Goddess Parvati used to cook food for Lord Shiva in the temple kitchen. No one was allowed to enter the temple during the period. A group of Brahmins wanted to find out the secret and ventured into the temple at not designated time. For breaking the rule, Goddess Parvati left the temple in anger. The Brahmins asked for her mercy and performed intense austerities.
She later relented and agreed to make her presence felt in the sanctum sanctorum for 12 days. Today, the 12-day period attracts thousands of devotees to the temple. The Nadathurappu follows the procession bearing the sacred jewels to be adorned by the deity reaching the temple from the Akavoor Mana. The opening ceremonies start after the arrival.The procession with the Thiruvabharanam starts from the Akavoor Mana.
The jewels will be received by temple trustees. The eternal flame from The Sri Ramaswamy Temple will be passed on to the torch in the vehicle bearing the Thiruvabharanam, before the procession starts to Thiruvairanikulam temple. The arrival of the chariot and procession accompanied by thousands with customary rituals and Kavadi starts off the elaborate rituals at the temple.
The rituals will be led by Cherumuk priest in the presence of representatives from the three mythological-related Manas and the presence of the mythological Pushpini, a close friend of the deity. Edanad Allimangalam family member, who takes on the role of Pushpini, called out to make sure the required representatives from the manas are present. Soon after, the Parvathy Devi Nadathurappu happens, bringing to end a year’s wait for darshan.
