The travel to the temple itself is so refreshing that you would feel like visiting it often. The vibrant environment and the energy seen in the devotees can easily transform an atheist to a spiritual person. No words can correctly describe our experience to Sabarimala. The 41 days fast prior to the visit to Sabarimala, holy dip in Pampa, trekking... More

Had a wonderful trip with my son. Feeling really blessed. Visited temple on 19th July. It was raining. Started my trek from Pamba at 7.45 am. As it was crowded, I did a Ashtabhishekam which got over by 12.30 in the noon. REached back pamba by 3 pm and with a feeling which cannot be explained(only can be felt)

He is son of Hariharan/Shiva. There are 2 ways to reach the temple, one takes half a day and the other one more than a day. This temple is pretty busy from November to January. Post which temple is open only 5 days in a month.

You are greeted by this when you enter the temple. Great!!! That can be interpreted in various ways. Once you reach there you feel compensated for the efforts undertaken to reach there.

Even in the off season period when I was there, River Pamba was found extremely polluted and stinking. I could see small hillocks of discarded clothes in the River. More discipline has to be enforced in... More
