 Special feature:
Lord Dharma Sastha as Aiyappan in the palace of Pandala king as his adopted Son, came to this place first as a young lad to learn martial arts, hence this is the first temple dedicated to His worship. Based on events in His life subsequently, other Aiyappan temples at Kulathupuzha, Ariangavu and Achankoil came into being according to some facts. Sabarimala temple is the last when the Lord stayed there for His penance. There are shrines for Mahalingam, Sori Muthu Aiyanar, Sangili Bhodathar, Brahmma Rakshasi, Thalavai Madan, Thoosi Madan, Pattavarayar, Sage Agasthya, Sudalai Madan, Irulappan, Irudan, Karadi Madasami the guardian deities. Those on Sabari pilgrimage visit this first temple to wear the mala-chain. On Aadi new moon day, devotees walk through Pookuzhi-fire pit as a prayer commitment.
The sacred tree-Iluppai maram absorbs the bells tied in it by the devotees, hence called Mani(bell) Vizhungi (swallowing) Maram (tree). It is said that Lord is accepting the contribution of the devotees.
