Kulathuppuzha Sastha Temple

Kulathuppuzha Sastha Temple is an ancient shrine of Lord Ayyappa, located at Kulathuppuzha in Kollam District. It is on the Thiruvananthapuram-Shencottai road.

The idol at the temple is known as Manikantan. The temple is believed to have been built by the Raja of Pandalam. A big fair, known as Vishu Mahotsavam, held in the month of April-May is a major draw.
