Alapppuzha(Kerala): Ever heard of a temple where mouth-watering chocolate bars are offered by devotees to the presiding deity?

While devotees offer flowers, sandal paste and fruits to invoke divine blessing, the ‘Thekkan Palani' Balasubramania temple differs as chocolate bars are offered in the sanctum sanctorum.

Chocolate bars of a leading brand are made as offering by devotees and they get them back as ‘prasdam' after poojas.

No wonder, the presiding deity of the shrine located at Subrahmanyapuram on the outskirts of the the town is known locally as “Munch Murugan.”
