History

Filled with fascinating mythology, this serene temple is supposed to have been where Lord Rama met Shabari while searching for his wife Sita and ate the berries she offered him, after tasting each one to make sure it was good. Three stones on which Lord Rama, his brother Lakshman and Shabari are said to have sat are still worshipped. Pampa lake, about 6 km from Shabari Dham, is a water source associated with a story of Lord Rama’s bathing.

Shabaridham temple is the spot where Lord Rama met a Bhil woman, Shabari. Lord Rama, his brother Lakshman ate the berries offered by Shabari mata at here. The stones on which they are assumed to sat are still worshiped.

From Ramayana, we well know that Devi Sita was forcibly taken away by Ravana. Lord Rama had sprung off a search mission to find his consort. During this mission, Lord Rama and Lakshman arrived at the hilltop, on which Shabari was said to be waiting for them for years.

The seekers took rest over there. Meanwhile, they were offered a fruit called ‘Ber’ by Shabari.

The present temple hosting the statues of Ram, Lakshman and Shabari was built in 2004. The Ramayana story is painted on the walls around the temple.
