Mannarasala - A temple for serpents, the most important serpant worship centre in Kerala Introduction

The origin of snake worship goes back to ram antiquity. But in no part of the world is snake worship still such a live tradition as in Kerala. In almost eve house the southwest corner of the compound is set apart for a snake shrine called sarpakavu. The propitiation o the serpent god is considered essential to the well being and prosperity of the family. Incidentally, with snake worship came also the principle that what is feared is respected.
