Governing Body


The most wonderful peculiarity about the temple is the structure of its governing body. Only the secretary and committee members are elected while the permanent president is Sree Dharma Sastha himself!

The administration of the temple goes to the whole Nair families residing in the nine Karas (part of the village). The secretary of Pullukulangara Devaswam is Dr. Kottinattu Sasikumar since December 21, 1988.

The Governing body has 13 members, 4 of them are elected to the General Seat, from the Karas related to Pullukulangara Devaswam. The present members are,
