About Karaga

The arrangements for the Karaga celebration start a fortnight before the full moon night of Chaitra with the lifting of the sanctuary hail on the banks of the Sampangi tank, in the midst of the droning of mantras. Draupadi is summoned on the 6th day through an extraordinary puja. On the seventh day the non-blessed Karaga or hasi Karaga is brought from a salt water lake close-by, according to the convention.

The Veerakumaras are chosen from the Tigala people group three days before the celebration. The picked few are given deeksha at the sanctuary and they stay unadulterated and pure till the celebration gets over. The ninth day is held for a fire-strolling custom. On this day the sanctuary Veerakumaras wear dhotis and convey swords in their grasp. They move over live charcoals and in that craze they hit their uncovered chests with the sharp edges of the swords.

They at that point begin running once again the charcoals. According to conviction, this is simply the minute when the Karaga puts consequently on the head on the bearer, who stays in confinement. The zone encompassing the sanctuary is involved by 500 wonderfully enriched chariots that land from sanctuaries from everywhere throughout the city for the festival of the celebration.
