Located in the centre of the city of Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu, India; the Sree Ayyappan Temple is a significant temple that is dedicated to Lord Sree Ayyappa. This temple in Coimbatore has been built on the same lines as of the original Sabarimala Temple in Kerala and thus is rightly honoured as the second Sabarimala Temple by devotees. In fact, not only the style of architecture but also the styles and methods of performing pooja at both the temples are similar. A visit to the Ayyappan Temple would thus make you feel as if you are in Kerala.
The Ayyappa Temple has been built following the traditional styles of architecture and is a pure delight for architecture lovers, history buffs as well as religious devotees. The temple attracts a huge number of devotees from all across the country all year round. These pious devotees visit the temple to seek the blessing of Lord Ayyappa, as well as use the temple as a mid-station for rest before they set out on their Sabarimala Pilgrimage.
The temple is well known for its purity and divinity, and also has shrines that are dedicated to other Gods such as Lord Shiva, Sri Murugan, Lord Vinayagar, Maha Vishnu and Durga Ji. The Dhwajasthambha of the temple is covered with gold, making the temple a one of its kind in Tamil Nadu. Festivals like Makaravilakku Day, Nagarajas Pooja, Ashtadhravya Ganapathy Homam and Navratri are also celebrated each year at the temple with great zeal and enthusiasm, making the temple truly a devotee's delight and one of the must-visit places while on your next trip to Coimbatore.
