  • Had a visit during the festival and Pongal time really haply be there and being part of this Pongala is on roof the best experience that I ever had  more »
  • The peak time of temple visit - do not attempt if you are not a fan of crowds. Tomorrow will see prasadan being prepared on temporary stoves made of stone all along the roads leading to the temple...  more »

  • One of the famous temple in Kerala as well as southern India. Known as Women's Sabarimala. Very neat place. You can easily reach either but public transport or but private transport. Parking will not be a problem even in very rushy time.
  • Great place of worship. One could feel the divineness percolating the inner self while meditating in front of the deity. Have been visiting the temple since 1970. The experience is beyond words.
