Sivagiri Mutt – Calm Your Senses
The ashram and tomb of Sri Narayana Guru, Sivagiri Mutt, is located atop Sivagiri Hills and is a popular Varkala sightseeing place. It’s believed that this is where the social reformer became enlightened. You can expect to see a steady flow of devotees that swells to thousands during the Sivagiri Pilgrimage that takes place from December 30th-January 1st.
The rituals observed during the period are distinct from other religious pilgrimages. Devotees are required to purify themselves on the basis of Buddha’s principles of mind, body, food, word and deed.
