One of the sportive arts of Devikarumari. One day Devikarumari took the image of old nomadic lady and went to Sun to forecast his future. Without realising her as Devikarumari, He simply neglected her. Devikarumari immediately vanished. Sun has lost its brightness and its glory started declining. Realising his mistake he begged Devikarumari to forgive and excuse him.
Sun also requested Devikarumari to celebrate Sunday as the day of Devikarumari. Devikarumari also accepted it. He also got permission from her to pour on her sunrays twice in a year in the month of Panguni and Purattasi. So Sunday is celebrated as the day of Karumari. We can happily witness the scene of sunrays falling on the head of Devikarumari twice in a year.
