Ochira in Kollam

Is this a modern concept for a temple or is it the way it was since its origin? Either way one would be surprised as soon as one may enter the premises of the Ochira Temple, situated on the way from Kollam to Alappuzha.

A striking feature of this temple is that like the traditional temples, which have definitive structural layout and mode of worship, the temple at Ochira does not have a proper structure or an idol for the visitors to worship. The whole concept of worship revolves around the Parabrahmam or the universal consciousness. This unique temple setting itself is a big attraction to hundreds of visitors coming to the temple everyday, irrespective religious faith.

The temple is also known as Dakshina Kashi and a unique offering to the temple is in the form of bulls. Another interesting aspect in connection with the temple is the annual festival called Ochira Kali, where men; both young and old step into waterlogged paddy fields and indulge in mock fights, involving physical skills of the participants.
