Sabarimala:  On January 14, 1999 at the Pampa Hill Top in Sabarimala, a stampede tragedy happened immediately after the sighting of the Makarajyothi, a bright light that the devotees consider divine, at Ponnambalamedu on the eastern part of the Ayyappa Sannidhanam, leaving 52 pilgrims dead and many others injured.

The Justice T. Chandrashekhara Menon Commission that inquired into the tragedy has found the State Government guilty of "negligence in ensuring the safety of the pilgrims coming from different parts of the country".
