Sabarimala is a pilgrim centre in Kerala in the Western Ghat mountain ranges of India. Lord Ayyappan's temple is situated here in the midst of 18 hills.
The pilgrimage to Sabarimala is a singular example of one where pilgrims, without consideration of caste, creed, position or social status, go with one mind and one `mantra' dreaming constantly of the darshan of the presiding deity at the Holy Sannidhanam.
Sabarimala temple is one of the oldest existing temples in India. Historians and Archaeologists have studied deeply about the temple, its construction pattern the interpretation of the legends associated with Sabarimala etc… and suggested that the temple is at least 4000-4250 years old. But according to popular beliefthe temple is 4800-5000 years old
Sabarimala was known in other 2 different names in pre-historic times. One is Madanga Mala as the sage Madanga was staying there. The other name of the place is Potalaka which derives from ‘Pottu’ and ‘Ulaka’. Pottu means light in ancient Tamil and Ulaka means place. The references of this place are in the old scriptures starting from Ramayana who came to meet the Sabari, the tribal devotee of Ram and disciple of Swamy Madanga.
