The Goddesses of Kamathipura, 

During the Pochamma Panduga and Ashada Jatra, another important symbol of the festival is neem leaves. Also a symbol of the Goddess, they decorated the many streets of Kamathipura.


This group takes out a procession on the streets of Kamathipura during Ashada Jatre / Pochamma Panduga. There are several street shrines as well as temples and they offer their prayers. They also have a couple of them who whip themselves and inflict pain.

Interestingly, they do not enter the main temples but stop and pray before them. However, they offer prayers at every street shrine that are decorated for the festival.
