Why do devotees proceeding on a pilgrimage to Sabari hill wear Uniform clothes?Members,
The Ayyappa devotees proceeding to Sabari hills are required to wear uniform clothes, preferably the black colour dhoti, towel and other clothes including their carry bag. They start wearing their uniform as and when they start their fast. Also there are many other temple shrines in India where the devotees use a particular colour clothes to visit.
Why this is so? Did the God or the reigning deity of that temple wants its devotees to wear uniform to visit them and offer their prayers? Is it a discipline or respect or something else?
Let us discuss.
