Sree Subramanya Swamy temple- Haripad , Allapuzha district,Kerala

 This is my first post on Lord Subramanya, the second son of Lord Shiva and Parvati and if one travels length and breadth of Tamil Nadu one would come across lot of temples dedicated to  Lord Subramanya also known as Muruga, Shanmugha, Vadivela, Andi  and by many more names . There are very few temples of Lord Subramanya in other States but recently I visited one in  Kerala, Haripad   situated on NH 47 and this is known as Dakshina Palani. This is one of  oldest temples in Kerala.
The temple is built in the ancient Kerala architecture and has marvellous wood carvings some of that is evident from the images depicted below. This temple is maintained beautifully , the serenity and cleanliness intact in spite of thousands of devotees visiting this temple. The temple is huge and has an imposing idol of Lord and this is believed to have been worshiped by Parasurama.

Peacock is Lord's mount and there are a couple of peacocks in temple which is a big attraction for  young old alike. This temple is about 1 1/2 hrs. from the Allapuza town.
