Kottayam: The Sabarimala temple, which was closed on Thursday night after the 41-day pilgrimage season, earned a record revenue of Rs 127 crore  till  Tuesday.

The collection, which includes donations by the pilgrims, income from  the sale  of ‘Appam’ and ‘Aravana’ and other sources, was higher compared to last year when the collection was Rs 106 crore.

There was no heavy rush of pilgrims on the last day for ‘darshan’ at the shrine, sources said.

The temple will reopen on December 30 for Makaravilakku festival. The ‘neyyabhishekam’ ritual began at 10.30 a.m. on Thursday and the ‘Thanka Anki’ was draped on the idol of Lord Ayyappa.
