“Ayyappa as Grihasthasrami ...”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

Achankovil temple is in the Kollam district and is in Kerala border. Infront of the temple we can see Achancovil river. Achankovil is an important Hindu pilgrim centre and the famous Sastha temple here is situated amidst thick forest. It is very much important among the sastha temples in Kerala. Here Lord Ayyappa is in the form of “Grihasthasrami”.Lord is sitting along with his two wives ‘Poorna’ and ‘Pushkkala’.The temple is surrounded by a big wall,it is meant to prevent wild animals entering inside the temple.

“one of the sacred temples of Lord Aiyappa”
Reviewed 19 October 2012

I am referring here the temple -Achankovil situated enroute Shenkottai- Punalur route. For all those Aiyappa devotees, this temple is a must visit. Ladies are not allowed inside the sanctum sanctorum but can worship from outside. This temple will be at its peak rush during the months of November- January. Hence those wishing to have nice darshan should avoid these months.
