Sivagiri Temple

Kerala abounds in numerous temples. Of the various temples in Kerala, Sivagiri temple is truly the one which deserves special mention. Sivagiri Temple is situated at Varkala. It is essentially a contemporary temple constructed by Sri Narayana Guru, who was one of the greatest social reformers of India and a contemporary of Mahatma Gandhi. The special feature of this temple is that it does not house any idol or image of deity. The reason behind this may be traced to the fact that it was built with a particular motive in mind. In 19th century it was established to fight against the evil practice of caste system which encouraged discrimination only.

Sivagiri Temple is also known as Sivagiri Mutt. Today it has become one of the popular places of pilgrimage. This is the famous headquarter of the 'Sri Narayana Dharma Sangham' which is a religious organization started by Sri Narayana Guru. The follower of this organization believes in the concept of One Caste, One Religion, One God.

There is a temple called Sarada Temple located near Sivagiri Mutt. Both of these temples in picturesque hill of Sivagiri are counted amongst the popular pilgrimage centers in Kerala.

Every year thousands of tourists thronged Sivagiri temple in the months of December and January as 'Sivagiri Pilgrimage' is conducted. Several colorful processions, debates and seminars, public meetings, cultural shows, community feasts, group wedding, rituals are held in Sivagiri hills during this time.
