  • A must visit temple, almost like Sabarimala temple. you will feel the positive energy. swamiye saranam ayyappa!!
  • Devotional place it's looks like iyyapan temple in Kerala
  • Milestone of Pondicherry. I used to go to this temple since from the construction was commenced. Became commercial due to rush !
  • Authentic temple with direct influence from Sabarimala temple in Kerala.
  • The poojas (religious practices) in the temple are performed as per the rules in Sabarimala, the difference being that the Sabarimala temple is open only on specific days in a year, while Sri Ayyappa Swamy Temple Pondicherry, temple is open to devotees throughout the year. *women of all age groups being allowed into the Sri Ayyappa Swamy Temple, Pondicherry (Puduvai Sri Iyappa Seva Sangam)
