Went for the darshan in morning. It was quiet and peaceful. Must feel so beautiful in evening when all lamps were lit! The darshan was nice.

WE went for the morning darshan. We got the Wella- paysam as prasadam. (Jaggery ). Pal paysam (Milk) was to be distributed after 12 noon,. First 30 would get half litre paysam. Rest would get limited quantity. Over 200 people daily take the paal paysam prasadam. Visit was really good.

Years back on my visit to Marari Beach, we came for a Dharsan and to have the famous Prasadam- Ambalapuzha Palpayasam.

You can have the feel of vibrations of standing near... More
