"Annadanam Samam Danam Trilokeshu Na Vidhathe"

These are the verses from the Vedas, meaning Annadanam is supreme and incomparable to any charity. Food is the basic requirement for all humans. Thus according to Vedas, the one who does annadanam to devotees attains heaven (Punya Loka) in this Universe (Brahmanda) itself. In this whole universe, the creation and its progression depend on food. Hence giving food to the devotees is more than attaining heaven.

"GajaturagaSahasram Gokulamkotidanam
Kanaka Rajathapatram Methinisagarantham
Upayakulavishuttam Kotikanyapradanam
Nahinahibahudanam Annadanamsamanam"

Donating 1000 elephants & horses, donating 10 million cows, donating any number of vessels of silver and gold, donating the entire land till sea, offering the entire services of the clan, helping in the marriage of 10 million women, all this is never ever equal to Annadanam, the feeding of hungry and needy.

Annadanam is conducted in this temple on Uthram day (birth star of Lord Ayyappa) of every month and also on festival days. Devotees, those who would like to sponsor Annadanam for a day , please contact temple office.
