108 Sastha Temples in Kerala constructed by Lord Parasurama

108 Sastha Temples in Kerala constructed by Lord Parasurama. 108 Sasthalayangal are also known as 108 Sasthakaavus or 108 Ayyappan Temples or 108 Dharma Shasta Temples.

Lord Sastha has been revered in Kerala since ancient times. Upon the creation of Kerala by Parasurama, he sought the protection of a divine force for his land. Through his penance, Lord Sastha manifested and made a promise to remain in God's own country. He instructed Parasurama to construct multiple temples to ensure his presence. As a result, Parasurama brought Lord Sastha to safeguard the land and its people, leading to the establishment of numerous temples dedicated to him. 

Certain locations characterized by a dense proliferation of trees hold a sacred significance, serving as the abodes of the divine. These places are known as Kaavu and Sree Dharmasastha is worshipped in different forms such as Aadhi Maha Shasta, Dharma Shasta (Ayyappan), Gnana Shasta, Kalyana Varadha Shasta, Sammohana Shasta, Santhana Prapti Shasta, Veda Shasta, Veera Shasta, Bala Sastha, and Vettakkorumakan.
