Too little space to review Sabarimala. It is believed that grand old lady Sabari, who waited for Lord Sri Rama to pass by. She collected fruit to give them to the Lord. That is how the name Sabarimala, malai/mala means Mountain. More known today for Swamy Aiyappa.

Traditional Hindu temple. It is a must visit to all Hindus. Lord Ayappa is the idol there and the temple opens only during the month of Nov- Dec . There are different ways to reach the temple. I like the Kanana patha (via Erumeli by walk around 55 km) through thick forest.

After filling the holy coconut with ghee and packing the essentials for offering to Lord Ayyappa in the Irumudi (called ketunira), the Guru places the sacred Irumudi on the head of the pilgrims chanting Saranam. The pilgrims leave the place without looking at anyone or bidding goodbye to family or friends. Walking barefoot the pilgrims proceed to realise his Self... More

One has to take ' Ayyappa Deeksha" by wearing a "Tulasi Mala" for a Mandalam ie 41 days, before proceeding to Sabarimala. On the day you start your journey to Sabari, you take 'GHEE" in a Coconut called the "Mudra Kaya", for the Abhisekham to Lord Ayyappa. The nearest point to Pamba is Chengannur, from where buses are available to... More

I am great devotee of Ayyappa. The positive energy, happiness and heavenly experience you experience once visiting sabarimala is un-explainable. Once been in Sabarimala, It is where I want to come again and again. Being born in Pandalam(Where Ayyappan had spent his childhood), it gives me such a pride and divine feeling to say that 'I come from place where... More
