According to the ancient scriptures or 'puranas' and folk songs of Kerala, Lord Ayappa was born out of Vishnu and Shiva.
The temple is open to all, except adolescent girls and young women, irrespective of caste and religion. Small girls and women who have attained menopause are only allowed inside the temple.
