The Sabarimala pilgrimage is completely a different experience and one should undertake this unique pilgrimage to this great temple of Sabarimala. This temple is... More

One sentence enough Om Sri Swamiye Sharnam Ayyappa to lord.No offering's required to swamy. Lord Ayyappa is the powerful among devaganas. There are 2 ways To reach this Temple.One from Erumely and another from Pamba.From Erumely its difficult to go five mountains.

The predominant feature is that no religion is a criteria to visit this shrine. Girls above the age of 10 and ladies below the age of 50 are not permitted to climb up the hills to... More

Not many stalls for food were available at the top to cater to the huge crowd. The crowd in October was not... More

My first Sabarimala trip was with my Father. I still feel that charm and divinity on every trip. Not only the temple, the trip is also unforgettable. The best way to experience the divinity is to start trekking from Erumeli via Peroorthodu, Kottapadi, Kaalaketti, Azhhuthamedu, Kallidaamkunnu, Inchipaarakotta, Karimala, Valiyaanavattam, Cheriyaanavattam, Pamapa, Neelimala ,Appachimedu, Sabareepeedom, and Saramkuthi through the forest.
