Ayyappa Temples

List of famous ayyappa temples in Kerala. Ayyappa is known as “Hariharan Puthiran” because he is the son of both Hari(Vishnu) and Haran(Siva). His most common name is Manikandan because soon after his birth his parents (Mohini & Shiva) tied a necklace with a gem (mani) around his neck (kandan).
