|Irumudi can be prepared at the temple at 8:00 am on Special Puja days. Devotees with Irumudi are requested to climb the Holy Steps before 9:00 am and hand over Abhishekam materials to the priest prior to the Abhishekam at 9:30 am
After performing Ayyappa Puja, fill the mudra coconut with melted ghee. If you are a Kanni Ayyappan or Kanni Maalikappuram (first timer), Guruswamy will help you to fill the mudra coconut with ghee. Mudra coconut and other Puja items must be placed in the front pocket of the Irumudi and the other two coconuts must be placed in the rear pocket.
Always keep chanting the names of Lord Ayyappa while preparing the Irumudi. Never place the Irumudi on the floor; always place it on a towel and treat it with Bhakthi.
