    One of the two most famous NAGAR (Serpent) KSHETRAMs in Kerala (the next is PAAMBUMEKKAVU). Both the temples are connected with Illams (House of Nampoothiries). In MANNARASHALA, the Pooja is performed by The Senior Lady (Amma) of the Illam. A serious worshipper can visit NILAVARA, which is a part of the Illam. "URULI KAMAZHTHAL" is one of the most important offerings here for "Santhaana Laabham" (for giving birth). Very orthodox and strict rituals. AAYILLYAM NSKSHTHRAM is very Important here.
