गिनीज़ बुक में लिखा है कि संसार में इतना बड़ा महिलाओं द्वारा आयोजित कोई दूसरा धार्मिक अनुष्ठान नहीं है जिसमे लाखों महिलाई जाति, धर्म, ऊँच नीच के भेदभाव को भुलाकर दूर दूर से चलकर  थिरुवनंथपुरम के प्राचीन आट्टूकल भगवति (देवी) मंदिर के प्रांगण में बिना किसी बुलावे या निमंत्रण के  एकत्रित होती हैं. यहाँ इस मंदिर में प्रति वर्ष फ़रवरी मार्च के महीने में दस दिनों का उत्सव होता है. उत्सव भरणी /कृत्तिका नक्षत्र के दिन प्रारंभ होता है. नौवां दिन विशेष महत्त्व का रहता है जब सभी महिलाएं देवी के लिए नैवेद्य के रूप में वहीँ चूल्हे जलाकर खीर पकाती हैं. इसलिए इस ख़ास अनुष्ठान का नाम है “पोंगाला” जिसका शाब्दिक अर्थ होता है उफनने तक उबालन. इस तरह के पोंगाला का प्रचलन तमिलनाडु में भी कई जगह है परन्तु जो बात आट्टूकल में है वह अन्यत्र नहीं.  कल्पना कीजिये लाखों चूल्हे और हर चूल्हे पर एक या दो महिलाएं. कहा जाता है कि पिछली बार यह संख्या १५ लाख थी. जहाँ देखो वहां चूल्हा, सड़क के दोनों और, स्थानीय निवासियों के घरों के कम्पौंड, दफ्तरों के बाहर या कहें जहाँ जगह मिली वहीँ. लगभग मंदिर के ५ किलोमीटर की परिधि में यत्र तत्र. परन्तु कतारबद्ध. यह त्यौहार केवल महिलाओं के लिए है और पुरुष इसमें भाग नहीं ले सकते. मूलतः यह एक आदिम (अवैदिक) परंपरा रही है और समाज के निम्न वर्ग ही इसमें भाग लिया करते थे. परन्तु अब स्थितियां बदल गयी है. अब तो सभी वर्ण के और यहाँ तक मलयालम फिल्म उद्योग से जुडी सभी तारिकाएँ यहाँ देखी जा सकती हैं. इसलिए इस पोंगाला को महिलाओं की शबरीमला कहा जाता है.
