Narayana Guru Breathed His Last Here The 'Sivagiri Mutt' is a 'Ashram' founded by the immense Hindu reformer and philosopher, Sree Naravana Guru.

Even decades after the Guru breathed his last here in 1928 AD, his 'Samadhi' (restling place) continues to be thronged by thousands every year. The 'Sivagiri Pilgrimage' is conducted between December 30 and January 1.

The Mutt is also the headquarter of the 'Sree Narayana Dharma Sangham', a religious organisation established by the Guru to propagate his concept of 'One Caste, One Religion, One God'. The Sarada Temple and Sivagiri Mutt set in picturesque hill of Sivagiri near Varkala have now become a place of pilgrimage with great fanfare.

Colourful processions, debates and seminars, public meetings, cultural shows, community feasts, group wedding, rituals all mark the celebrations in Sivagiri hills.

Sree Narayana Guru was one of the most public reformers of India and a contemporary of Mahatma Gandhi. His call for parity among people found a great following.

His teachings have had a profound effect on the caste-ridden society of Kerala and helped the state achieve great social progress when compared to the other states of India. Founded many ashrams, the most significant being at Sivagiri near Kollam.
