Makarachowwa is the most important festival of Bhagavathy.
Falling on the first Tuesday of the Malayalam month of Makaram, (January)
this festival has become the festival of the whole community.
There is such
an emotional approach to this festival. There will not be a single person
in and around Guruvayur who does not visit the temple and pay homage to the
Bhagavathi on that day.
