Using wooden sticks in place of his foots, Halappa Swamy has visited Sabarimala on Thursday. A native of Haveri in Karnataka, Halappa has already passed 60 years of age and has been coming to Sabarimala for the past 35 years. He has been coming to Sabarimala in the wooden stick legs for the past five years. He has completed the stroll marathon in 23 days and reached here on Thursday. After that he ascended the holy steps using his real foots and had darsan. After the darsan a lot of devotees had come towards him seeking his blessings and Halappa seemed happy to have come once again visiting on his wooden stick legs, a special technique he had acquired with the blessings of Lord Ayyappa.
