Coconuts. Sabarimala

When they get to the feet of the temple pilgrims brake their coconuts as offering to Lord Ayappa.
then they are burned..

those are ghee (clarified butter) filled coconuts thrown in the fire ... the heat grows so intense that the metal barricade melts and forms strange shapes .... you can feel the heat on your face as you look at it .. its usually at the end of the pilgrimage ... and I just wanted to head home then :o)
