THIRUVANATHAPURAM - THIKKAUD DANDAYUDHAPANI AMBALAM

On account of its situation in Thiruvananthapuram, the capital of Kerala and lying in the heart of the cosmopolitan pilgrimage city, this Muruga kshetra is luring a steady influx of devotees throughout the year. Moreover, the striking resemblance of this august archamurti to that of Dandayudhapani of Palani, it claims special divinity and boasts of it as another plus point for its immense popularity and unparalleled eminence. The sculpturing of the icon exhibiting superb craftsmanship deserves highest praise. And it is beckoning frequent visits by the pious Bhaktas. Regular agamic worship is offered with utmost religious fervour. And among the periodical festivals, suklapaksha Sashti festival draws unmanageable crowds. During Karthika and Vaisakha nakshatras special prayer services are offered with due devotion, and they also lure Bhaktas in large numbers. There is a sacred well in the campus supplying water for abhishek purposes and it has a legend too. Among the very few Murugan kshetras in the state of Kerala, this is passing for a centre of pilgrimage for Muruga bhaktas and hence the conduct of all kinds of services here in all seasons.

It is in the centre of the Kerala capital, so autos and four wheelers take the Bhaktas to it at all hours.
