The temple dedicated to Lord Ayyapa is situated high on the Western Ghats and can be reached only by foot. The temple is thronged by thousands of pilgrims everyday, especially during the time when the Makarajyothi (a divine light that appears above the shrine) is seen. People of any religion can visit this temple. However, for women, entry is allowed only to those below the age of ten or above the age of 60.
