SABARIMALA

The hill-to of Ayyappa at Sabarimala -
Introduction

Of the many famous temples in Kerala, two are most well known to those outside the state. They are, the Guruvayur temple dedicated to Sri Krishna near the seacoast central Kerala and the Ayyappa temple of Sabarimala the Western Ghats in south Kerala. 

While Sri Krishna is a living deity to every Hindu home from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, Ayyappa, the beloved god of Keralites is peculiar to Kerala since it is there he enacted his human drama. His glory is' however, spreading far and wide drawing millions every year-the main pilgrimage season is from mid-November I mid-January when Mandala Vilakku and Makara Vilakku festivals are hold.


* For a comprehensive account of Sabarimala please read the author’s book, pilgrimages to Sabari a Bhavan’s publication.
