Timings / Facilities at Sabarimala

The Travancore Devaswom Board is trying its level best to provide all facilities for the pilgrims, due to the heavy rush, the facilities may not be enough. Hence pilgrims are advised not to overstay at the temple premises. Since the boarding facilities at the Sannidhanam are not enough to cater to the heavy rush of pilgrims, the devotees are requested to leave Sannidhanam at the earliest, after Darshan and other rituals.

Parking of vehicles except light vehicles has been arranged at Nilackal. The heavy passenger vehicles allowed to drop the devoees at Pamba and go back to Nilackal, to park the same at the parking area provided by Travancore Devaswom Board. After the Darshan devotees may avail the facility of chain services arranged by KSRTC to reach Nilackal parking area. These arrangements are to avoid the heavy rush and trafficjam at Pamba. During heavy rush days, heavy vehicles will not be allowed beyond Nilakkal.
