How to Get There.

This sthalam is situated 4 kms away from Sengannoor in North in Kerala state. We can also rach this sthalam by travelling in bus who starts from Thirucchenganoor to Kottayam. Since, this is a small village, there is no staying facility and as a result of this, to get the seva of this sthala Emperumaan, we have to stay in Thiruvalvaazh.
