SABARIMALA (PATHANAMTHITTA), INDIA, January 14, 2010: Millions of devotees waiting anxiously for hours to witness the celestial light, shouted in joy and thanksgiving when the Makara Jyothi appeared thrice on the horizon at the Sabarimala temple here Thursday evening. The celestial light was seen after 6:40 p.m.

Sighting of the celestial light on the horizon is considered most auspicious and marks the finale of the three-month-long pilgrim season at the hill shrine of Sabarimala. Kerala Devaswom Minister Kadnanapally Ramachandran, a first timer to witness this spectacle, said he felt very moved at seeing the light. “It is certainly an experience. This is my first ever visit to witness this spectacle,” said Mr. Ramachandran after the light appeared on the horizon.
