ANNADHANA TRUST

The internationally famous Sabarimala Sree Dharma Sastha Temple is situated amidst the dense forest in the southernmost part of the Periyar wild life sanctuary in Western Ghats. The Temple attracts millions of pilgrims from all over India and abroad every year.

Lord Ayyappa, the presiding deity of Sabarimala temple is addressed by pilgrims as ‘Annadadhana Prabhu’. Therefore providing food to the pilgrims who come to Sabarimala is an act of devotion and is very close to Ayyappa Dharma.

The Travancore Devaswom Board, which is the governing body of Sabarimala temple, has implemented a free food scheme to Sabarimala devotees. Since millions of pilgrims come to Sabarimala every year, this programme needs substantial resources for efficacious implementation. The Board has formed a Trust by name Sabarimala Sree Dharma Sastha Annadhana Trust with the main objective of providing free food to pilgrims visiting Sabarimala. It is our earnest hope that this noble venture will be a grand success.
