Sivagiri - is the final resting place of Sree Narayana Guru

Sivagiri: situated 3 Km. from Varkala Janardhana Swami Temple. This is the final resting place of Sree Narayana Guru. Rare Pictures of Guru and his belongings are kept here. This is a famous pilgrimage centre also.

Sree Narayana Guru spearheaded the social revolution of breaking away with the rigid caste hierarchies that hitherto prevailed in Kerala. His philosophy of 'one caste, one religion and one God for man' attracted a large following among the lower castes.  He even installed idols in temples to prove that the authority to perform religious rites does not exclusively belong to the Hindus, specially the Brahmins. The Sharada temple and his mutt at Sivagiri atop Varkala hill has now become a place of pilgrimage
