He said a procession of the copper and silver to cover the mast will begin from Mulihithlu and after passing through Bolara, Jeppu Market, Casscia High School, it will end at the temple.

The golden jubilee celebrations will be organised at Mangaladevi Temple Kala Vedike on October 12.

“Our team is given due prominence during Mangaladevi and Bolara Sri Mariamma  Mahishamardhini Temple’s Navaratri processions. Children also take part in tiger dance. Our team had performed in Germany and France in 2000. Even during Emergency period, our Guru late Umesh had performed Hulivesha during the rathotsava of Mangaladevi Temple,” Mendon recollected.
