Although devotion to Ayyappan has been prevalent in Kerala for hundreds of years, in the rest of South India, it has become popular only in recent times in the late 20th century. The iconography of Ayyappan depicts him as a handsome celibate God doing yoga and as an epitome of Dharma , who wears a bell around his neck. In the Hindu pantheon, his legends are relatively recent but diverse. He is honored by Muslims in Kerala, with legends wherein Ayyappan defeats and gains worship of the Muslim brigand Vavar. He was raised by a childless royal couple Rajashekara pandiyan and Koperundevi, and grows up as a warrior yogi champion of ethical and dharmic living. Ayyappan popularity has grown in many parts of India, and the most prominent Ayyappan shrine is at Sabarimala , nestled in the hills of Pathanamthitta of Kerala. The shrine receives millions of pilgrims every year in late December and early January, many of whom prepare for weeks before and then climb the hill barefoot, [4] making it one of the largest active pilgrimage sites in the world.
