  • A mysterious place! Something very powerful, and thrilling. Enjoyed it.
  • 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.
  • It's not good to rate this worship place. But still I will share the info for others, it's maintained much better and everyone should visit.
  • Famous Nagaraja Temple in Kerala. Situated in South Kerala Alapuzha District , Haripad. Nearest Railway station Kayamkulam.
  • Serpant temple. Love this place
