SABARIMALA SREE DHARMA SASTHA ANNADHANA TRUST

The internationally famous Sabarimala Sree Dharma Sastha temple is situated amidst the dense forest in the southernmost part of the Periyar Tiger Reserve in the Western Ghats.  The Temple attracts millions of pilgrims from all over India and abroad every year.

Lord Ayyappa, the presiding deity of Sabarimala temple is addressed by pilgrims as ‚ÄúAnnadhana Prabhu‚ÄĚ.¬† Therefore providing food to the pilgrims who come to Sabarimala is an act of devotion and is very close to Ayyappa Dharma.

The Travancore Devaswom Board, which is the governing body of Sabarimala temple has implemented free food scheme to the Sabarimala devotees, both at Sabarimala and Pampa including the idathavalams.  Since millions of pilgrims come to Sabarimala every year, this programme needs substantial resources for efficacious implementation. The Board has formed a Trust by name SABARIMALA SREE DHARMA SASTHA ANNADHANA TRUST with the main objective of providing free food to pilgrims visiting Sabarimala and other temples.

The Board has constructed an Annadhana Mandapam behind the Malikappuram Temple and it is the biggest one in India. The Board is equipped to serve free food for more than two lakhs pilgrims round the clock every day.
