The velans were also classified into two ‘koothadees' and ‘pura nadees'.
The ‘koothadies' will observe ‘oothu' and the ‘pura nadees' will play the role of a comedian in the ritual. The construction of temporary houses with coconut thatched roof has been completed in the temple.
The participants of the ritual are staying in the temporary houses. Members of six families are the heir of the ritual. Chembakassery, Koickal, Kunnankari, Eramunda, Nattassery and Ambalappuzha are the heir to perform the ritual.
