  • One of the Hindu temple, which can be visited by Western guests of other religions. Photos may make against a little earnest money (100 rupees). Before maybe ask for when the innermost area is open. Worth a visit.

  • An oldest temple dedicated to subrahmanya swami. It situates in wast area... A big temple pond is nearby..
  • Subrahmanya swami here is said to have Vishnu aspect also. Peacock viewing is available. Lemon garland here is very famous
  • Sree Subrahmanya Swamy temple at Haripad is one among the three oldest temples of Kerala. Daily a number of devotees come to this holy shrine. It is believed that the temple was established even before the advert of ‘Kaliyuga‘. There are two legends connected with the origin of this temple. One is based on the story mentioned in the ‘Skandapurana‘ and the other is related to the payippad Snake-boat race. The story in the Skandapurana goes like this:- When Tharakasura got a boon from Para Brahma that he could not be killed by anyone other than a small child, his atrocities grew to its climax. So the Devas suffered much. They decided to kill the Asura. Hence they sought the help of Parama Siva
  • The Sree Subrahmanya Swamy temple in Haripad is one of the oldest temples in Kerala. This temple dedicated to Subrahmanya Swamy is known as Dakshina Palani(Southern Palani). It is believed that the temple was established even before the advent of Kaliyuga.
  • Haripad Sree Subramanya Swami temple is a very famous one. Hundreds of people come this shrine every day. When we stand in front of the ShreeKovil at the time of Deeparadhana, we can feel the positive energy in and around us. Another attraction is the sanctury of Peacock within the temple compound. Parking is not sufficient when compared with inflow of vehicles. Amenities for the devotees is not up to the mark. At festival season, reaching near the temple by vehicles is a headache.
