Thycaud Sastha Temple

Temple of Lord Ayyappa

Sastha Temple is a beautiful shrine situated near Govt Arts College at Thycaud in Thiruvananthapuram. This ancient temple enshrines Lord Ayyappa as the presiding deity. Devotees believe that one can accomplish all one's desires by worshipping Thycaud Sastha.

The temple also has sub shrines for Lord Ganesh, Lord Hanuman, Navagraha, Lord Shiva, goddess Durga and Nagaraja.

Sastha Temple, which has been maintained recently, is an excellent example of the Kerala style of architecture. Neeranjanam, which is done in order to remove the 'Shani dosham', or the evil influence of the planet Shani, is the main offering at the temple. Mandala Puja and Makar Sankranti are the major festivals celebrated at the temple.

Trivandrum International Airport and Thiruvananthapuram Central Railway Station (1 km) are the nearest airport and railway station.
