The auspicious first day in the Malayalam calendar is welcomed by special prayers and ceremonies.

The hill shrine of Lord Ayyappa was opened last evening for the monthly pooja for Chingam.

Padmanabha Swamy and Pazhavangadi Lord Ganesha Pazhavangadi temples here witnessed a heavy rush of pilgrims on the occasion.

Chingam is also of great significance as Onam, the biggest fesitval in Kerala, is celebrated in this month.
