Balimandapam at Varkala
Construction of Balimandapam at Varkala Papanasam is one of the major Projects undertaken by VIVID Corporation. Balimandapam facilitates pilgrims who come to Varkala for doing Vavubali at Papanasam (doing Hindu rituals for their departed souls during vavubali day). Balimandapam was constructed by Habitat Technology Group (Padmashri.Arch.G.Sankar) and under the strict supervision of Brahmashri.Kanipayyoor Krishnan Namboothirippadu (Doyan of Vasthu Vidhya and Kerala Temple Architecture). Lakhs and lakhs pilgrims gather at Varkala during vavubali day due to the speciality of Varkala Papanasam history (Dakshin Kashi). But this Balimandapam is to accomodate the daily pilgrims who come to Varkala for doing their rituals (Balitharpanam). The Mandapam absorbs 50-60 pilgrims at a sitting for doing thier rituals. The daily functioning of the Mandapam is entrusted with Travancore Devaswom Board authorities.
