About Lalbazar Ayyappa Temple

Lalbazar Ayyappa Temple (Secunderabad)

The Ayyappa Bhaktha Samithi, Lalbazar (Secunderabad) came into being in early 1963 under the presidentship of late Sri K Kochaiyappan with few ardent devotees of Lord Ayyappa as its members. The aim of this Samithi was to conduct pooja during the Mandalakalam and thus provide an opportunity to the devotees of cantonment area and nearby places including the devotees of Defence Establishment/Units to worship Lord Ayyappa. The initial venue for the pooja was erstwhile Doddi village (now Subhash Nagar). This pooja site was subsequently shifted to various places such as premises of Lalbazar Mahankali Temple, MCEME Hockey Ground, Kendriya Vidyalaya Picket and 91 Meadows Barracks Lalbazar during the period from 1965 to 1988 due to obvious reasons. The registration of the Samithi was done in 1983.
