History

The beginning

In 1964 a few ardent devotees of LORD AYYAPPA assembled in the house of Shri K.Narayanan Nair in HAL New Township. A Committee under the convenership of Shri A.Vasu was formed. A regular committee was later formed with Shri C.N.Pisharody, President, Shri K.P.Das, Secretary and Mr.Babugopalan as treasurer. Saturday Bhajans were held in the houses of Devotees. The First Ayyappan Vilakku was organized during the year 1964 at HAL New Township, Marathahalli.

Growth

Sree Ayyappa Bhajana Sangham was registered under the Societies Act in 1971-72. HAL Management was very generous in allotting land for the temple in HAL Old Township. The plan for the temple, idol of Lord Ayyappa, Lord Ganesha and Goddess Devi were made by renowned Temple Architect Shri Kannipayur Krishnan Namboodiripad. The foundation stone for the temple was laid on 27th October, 1976.
