Phone: 0471-2796255,  9495625196

Location :- 8 Km South of Thiruvananthapuram city on the Kovalam route, the temple is    situated at Vazhamuttam  a serene village in between the Arabian Sea and the Vellayani Lake.

    The landed property owned by the temple comes around 21 acres and 21 cents which was donated in M.E. 1071 by Shri. Kochukutty Vaidyar of Chettiyar Thoppil in Pachalloor, who was an ardent worshipper of Sree Narayana Guru.  There was a temple and a rest house for Sree Narayana Guru. As requested by Shri. Kochukutty Vaidyar, Guru consecrated the Sree Subramanya Temple (ME 1071) on 17th Vrischikam at the sacred moment between Pournami and Rohini.  The Temple is situated on the hilly region surrounded by small rocks near Vazhamuttam Junction.  There is a small rivulet on the hillock, which provides pure water throughout the year.  When we go up, beyond the rivulet we can see the Mutt where the Guru took rest and a dining hall and kitchen.  The furniture and vessels used by Guru are still                retained in the Mutt.  From here, we can reach the temple by climbing a few steps.  On the south of the temple, there is another mutt constructed by the Vaidyar for the Guru to take rest.  There is a Guru Mandir on the north west direction of the temple.  Sreemath Swami Sankarananda, the head of Sivagiri Mutt, unveiled the photo of Sree Narayana Guru in 1965.  The photo of  Shri. Kochukutty Vaidyar, the donor, is also exhibited in front of the Mutt.  The extensive hilly region beyond the temple is known as Munippara where we can see a few caves. The Guru used to take rest in these caves.  The people of the locality believe that after the Mahabharatha War, Aswathamavu considered Munippara as his last resting place.  Sree Narayana Jayanthy Celebrations, observance of Samadhi day, Shashti Vrutham, Thaipooyam, Monthly and vacation classes on the Guru’s teaching are the important functions here.
  Sreemath Swami Bodhitheertha is the Secretary.
