Some details about the Sabarimala temple – history, tradition, location and distance from Cochin

Surrounded by the dense forest that is now called the Periyar Tiger Reserve, around 17-50 million devotees take a trip to Sabarimala annually. The temple hosts one of the most revered deities, Lord Ayyappa. It attracts pilgrims not just from Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh, but also from other parts of the country, and even from all over the world. The doors to the temple are opened only during the days of Mandalapooja in November-December, Makara Sankranti on January 14 and Maha Vishuva Sankranti on April 14, and the first five days of each Malayalam month.

The known history of the temple goes back to the 12th century, but it was built three centuries before that. The temple remained unreachable for 300 years after it was built. Then, a prince from the Pandalam Dynasty, Manikandan, discovered the path to reach Sabarimala. The prince meditated in the temple and attained divinity. He was considered to be the Avatar (incarnation) of Lord Ayappa.

The name of the temple Sabarimala also has its roots in mythology or history that go back to thousands of years. It is believed that when Lord Ram and his brother Laxman were wandering from forest to forest in search of Sita after the demon king, Rawan abducted her, they came across Shabri. She was a tribal woman living in a hermitage set up by Sage Matanga. She fed Lord Ram fruits after sampling them, and despite being a tribal (a lower caste during those times), Lord Ram gladly ate the fruits first tasted by her. Many people believe that Sabarimala derives its name from Shabri, but various versions are available.

The temple is on a hilltop at an altitude of 1574 feet above the sea level.  Mountains and dense forests surround it. The forest around Sabarimala temple is known as Poongavanam (Periyar Tiger Reserve). Various other temples are existing on the surrounding hills, but this is the most prominent temple with such veneration that even people from different religions visit the temple to seek the blessings of the Lord. One has to follow a Vratham – a fast of 41 days – before one can visit the Sabarimala temple.

Pilgrims visit the temple in groups of 4-50 under the guidance of a leader called Guru Swami. A Guru Swami is usually an older adult who may have visited the Sabarimala temple multiple times and is also familiar with the practices that need to be followed to get the full blessings of the presiding deity.

The devotees typically reach the Pamba base station through various means including taxi and cab services, and after that, there is a 5 km trek to the hilltop where the temple is situated. Recently the base camp has been shifted. In 2018, during the annual pilgrimage season, the base camp was changed to Nilakkal which is 17 km from the old base camp Pamba. Whether it is Nilakkal or Pamba or somewhere else near the Sabarimala temple, the distance can be easily covered if you have hired yourself a Cochin to Sabarimala taxi service.

Unique, pure ghee is offered to Lord Ayappa, and during the trek, this offering is carried over the head wrapped in a handwoven cloth.

From the Cochin railway station (prevalently known as Ernakulam Railway Station) Sabarimala is about 140 km. The taxi drive takes about 5 hours.

From Kochi Airport, which is around 155 km from Sabarimala, the taxi service takes around 5 hours.

Are you looking for the best taxi package from Kochi to Munnar? This page will provide you all the information you need to help you make your holiday plans and get the best possible Kochi to Munnar taxi package according to your budget and travel plans.

If you plan to travel from Kochi to Munnar, you have got two options: the state bus transport or a taxi service.

Another benefit of taking a taxi package to Munnar is you can decide your itinerary. You can stop where you feel like. You can click photographs.

Where is Munnar?

Munnar is well deservedly called the “Kashmir of South India” though, with extensive deforestation in the valley of Kashmir, it can be safely said that Munnar is more beautiful and picturesque compared to the famous tourist destination in the North. Since the British times, the town has been a tourist hill station in the district of Idukki in south-western Kerala. At an altitude of 5200 feet above the sea level, Munnar has lush green hills, widespread tea plantations, picturesque settlements and villages, and out-of-this-world trekking tracks.

With magnificent hills and mountains playing hide and seek with the clouds that scurry around over the captivating greenery, it is in Munnar where the beauty of the Western Ghats reaches its pinnacle.

For a Taxi Package, what is the distance from Kochi to Munnar?

There is approximately a distance of 130 km from Kochi to Munnar on National Highway 85. It takes almost 4 hours in a taxi to reach Munnar from Kochi. The time depends on the congestion of traffic and several other factors you may come across during your ride.

Since the Tata Group of Companies is the biggest producer of tea in Munnar and due to this, the second largest in the world, the museum is aptly called “Tata Tea Museum.” Whatever you want to learn about the history of tea plantations, you can learn it here. At this museum, you will know how the tea leaves are grown, plucked, and processed so that they can be brewed to a steaming, an enervating cup of tea.

However, you don’t just learn about tea. The museum also holds ancient relics, for example, a burial urn from 2nd century A.D.

The museum is open from 10 AM to 5 PM. The per person entry fee for adults is ₹ 75 and four children it is ₹ 35. If you want to bring along a still camera, you will be charged ₹ 20 extra. Want to taste different varieties of tea displayed at the museum? You can pay ₹ 100 for the experience.

2. The Blossom International Park

Spread over 16 acres of heavenly parkland, the Blossom International Park can be easily reached by your taxi service as it is just 3 km away from the main Munnar town. You can do boating, roller skating and cycling in the park and if you wish to have a quiet walk among the abundant trees and flowers, you can do that too. You may like to take along your binoculars because exotic birds from all over the region come here to roost and feed. The place is famous for nature walks. The entry fee is meager, and the timings of the park are 9 AM to 7 PM.

3. Mattupetty Dam

This is another spectacular tourist location you can easily reach by taxi. Every dam has a large water reservoir, and so does Mattupetty Dam in the form of the Mattupetty Lake that boasts of crystal-clear water capped by a beautiful blue sky and cradled by dense, lush vegetation. The water and the vegetation naturally attract a multitude of wildlife, including animals and birds. You can enjoy the serene and majestic water sitting at the bank, or you can indulge in water sports such as speed boating. You can also go for trekking in the Shola forest for that matter.

4. Eravikulam National Park

You can use your Kochi to Munnar taxi package to organize a visit to the Eravikulam National Park that covers around 97 square kilometers in the Western Ghats and boasts of the highest peak in India in the south of the Himalayas.

The National Park has 6 species of mammals including the rare Nilgiri tahr, 132 species of birds and 19 species of amphibians. There are also 101 species of butterflies in the park. Many river tributaries merge inside the park, making it replete with many water bodies supporting diverse flora and fauna. If you are in luck, you can also come across a leopard or a tiger. Private taxis and other vehicles are not allowed inside the national park – you will need to leave the taxi at the base parking station, and from there onwards you will need to hire a safari bus. It is advised that you reach the park very early in the morning because otherwise long queues build up and then you may have to wait for a couple of hours to be able to enter the national park.

5. Echo Point

Echo Point is an easy 15 km drive from the main Munnar town and can be easily reached by your hired taxi. As the name suggests, the place is famous for creating natural echoes when you say something loud. When you arrive there, you will find scores of people screaming their lungs out, hoping to hear their sounds are thrown back at them by the ancient forest and the hills.

You can use your Kochi to Munnar taxi package to plan an exclusive trip to Echo Point, or you can stop by on your journey to Top Station, the highest point in Munnar which is 1700 m high.
