MALAINADU  DIVYA TIRUPATHIS

Tirumulikkalam - Tirumulikkaathan Ambalam

This is an ancient Vaishnava kshetra with a difference. Many of those features deemed indispensable for any place of worship are conspicuous by their absence, and yet it gained a covetable place among the 108 Divya desams. The archamurti s icon is in standing posture and faces east. A celebrated mahamuni by name Harita was blessed with the darsan of the Lord after due prayers. The Mother is called Madhuraveni Natchiar and the temple tank called Perumkula thirtha. The garbhagriha is adorned with Soundarya Vimana. There is no separate sannidhi for the Mother, but the august icon of Bhagavathy is enshrined in a grand minishrine and she is receiving regular worship with great devotional fervour. Another peculiarity discernable here is - there is no Vadyaghosha - instrumental music during prayer services. These age-old traditions have gained tacit approval, and mute acceptance is regarded as a mark of pious dedication, says the priest. This is lying on the bank of Alwaye and so special attraction. Regular worship is going on with great religious fervor and the annual festivals attract huge crowds.

It is 10 Km off Angamali railway station in Kerala, accessible by bus.
