The most famous pilgrimage destination in Kerala is Sabarimala.
The Sabarimala pilgrimage begins in the month of November and ends in January and attracts pilgrims from all parts of the country and abroad. A lot of pilgrims go to Sabarimala from Hyderabad every year.

Mandalapooja (Nov.17th) and Makaravilakku (Jan.14th) are the two main events of the pilgrim season. The temple stays closed during the rest of the year except for the first five days of every Malayalam month and during Vishu (April).

Pilgrims set out in groups under a leader, and each carry a cloth bundle called “Irumudi kettu” containing traditional offerings. The easiest route is via Chalakkayam, by which one can reach the banks of the river Pamba by vehicle. Pamba is the main halting point on the way to Sabarimala. From here one has to trek 4 to 5 kms to reach the temple.

Temple closes, after the season, on 20-01-2009. This is immediately after the Pandalam Royal Representatives pay obeisance to the Lord at 0700 hrs on 20-01-2009
