Kottayam to Erumeli

Tourists can experience the laid-back charm of both Kottayam and Erumeli regions on a weekend tour from Kottayam to Erumeli. Erumeli is one of the most popular pilgrim centers of Southern India. This place is a pligrimage for both the Hindus and the Muslims. Pilgrims travel from Kottayam to Erumeli to visit the Sabarimala Temple and Vavarambalam mosque.

Situated 60 kilometers north east of Kottayam town, Erumeli is one of the best getaways to reach Sabarimala Temple, a popular place of pilgrimage. Thousands of pilgrims flock the Sabarimala temple, to get a glimpse of the much revered Lord Ayyappa. This Sastha temple is world famous and is on the slope of the Western Ghats. Devotees from all caste, creed or religion can visit the temple. One of the important facts about the temple is that it is not open for pilgrims throughout the year. The temple is open from the month of Vruchikam (November) till Makaram-Makara Samkranthi (January). The temple lies a few miles ahead of the Vavarambalam mosque. The Pettathullul festival held annually in the month of January is another chief attraction for the tourists. Blessed with nature's bounty, the Erumeli village is dotted by numerous palm trees and teak plantation that enhance the natural beauty of the region.

The Vavarambalam mosque in Erumeli is dedicated to Vavar, the companion of one of the most revered deities-Sabarimala. Apart from the Muslims, Hindus also pay homage to the saint. The towering contours of the palm trees, the lakes and the farmlands forms a stunning backdrop from Erumeli to Kottayam that can be cherished forever by the tourists.
