12-jan-sabari-2 Petta thulal at Erumeli is an important ritual in the pilgrimage. It is performed in line with the dancing that Lord Ayyappa performed after eradicating Mahishi. It is believed that this thullal will clear the pilgrim Ayyappa from all sins. It clears the body and mind and provide the pilgrim the physical fitness for the daunting, lengthy pilgrimage through the forest.
