Beema palliThe Beemapalli Dargah Shareef, located 12 km from the city, is dedicated to Bee Umma, a pious Muslim woman with great spiritual powers, who is said to have migrated from Saudi Arabia centuries ago to preach Islam. The annual 10-day Uroos festival commemorates the saint and her son, Sayyidussaheed Maheen Aboobaker, both of whom are buried here. Religious discourses and cultural programmes are held in the evenings on these days. In a ritual known as Chandanakkudam, devotees make offerings of coins in earthen pots or kudams.
