The diety here is in the form of a boy (Bala Sasta). The peculiarity of the idol is that it is not a single idol, but is made of eight pieces or stones..The fishes in the Kulathupuzha river are called Thirumakkal (Sacred children of the Lord) Meenoottu (feeding of the fishes) is a special Vazhipadu here. Normally, grams and wheat flour are offered to thirumakkal. It is deceases are cured by Meenoottu. Myself and my wife felt so blessed..

Kulathupuzha is one of the important temples of Lord Ayyappan. This is located around 56 kms from Varkala beach. This temple is where the Lord is incarnated in child form. This small and popular temple is on the banks of river Kulathupuzha and across a narrow bridge. Gents have to remove upper garments to enter the main sanctum and no restrictions for ladies. It takes around 15 minutes to have a satisfactory dharshan on a normal day. We reached the temple by 10:45 and had excellent dharshan.
