About Us

AYYAPPA SEVA SAMGHAM BOMBAY (REGD.), established in the year 1973, is dedicated to serving the society in general by promoting "AYYAPPA BHAKTI". It caters to the spiritual and religious needs of the devotees of Mumbai. With its record of dedicated service, the organization has earned a place of pride in the hearts of the people of this great metropolis. The Ayyappa Temple was built in the year 1983 under the direction on all technical aspects of the renowned Temple Architect Br. Shree Kanipayyur Krishnan Namboodiripad. The consecration of the presiding deities of Lord Ayyappan and Lord Guruvayurappan along with Lord Ganapathi, Goddess Devi, Lord Karthikeyan, Navagrahas, Lord Kiratha Shiva and Nagaraja&Nagayakshi were done by His Holiness Br. Shree Kantaru Maheshwararu Tantri, the Supreme Priest of the world famous Shabarimala temple. He is also the Supreme Priest or the "Tantri" of our temple. Off late, due to his old age and sickness, he has inducted his grandson Br. Shree Kantaru Mahesh Mohanararu who is now the Sabarimala supreme priest, as our temple Tantri.
Apart from celebrating all religious Hindu festivals, this temple hosts two important annual functions, the "Prathishta Day and Utsavam" in May and the "Mandalam Festival" in December. Along with daily Pujas, Bhajans, Religious Discourses, Saptahams by learned scholars, Narayaneeyam, Akhandanamam, Bhagavatha Parayanam, Gita Chanting and Special Pujas are held regularly. The Temple has over the years attained the status of a major pilgrimage centre. Two more shrines were added to the temple complex i.e. Kirathasiva and Naga Prathishta on 29th June 2014.
