The place is famous for its serene and picturesque beauty.The hills and the Bharatapuzha river (which is only half a mile from the temple ) adds natural beauty to this place.These hills are called Vilwamala which is why Lord Sreerama is also called Vilwadrinathan.

Belief

 
The popular belief is that the darshan of both Tiruvilwamala and Tirunavayi on the same day is very auspicious. One can see the lights of Tiruvilwamala from Tirunavayi which is equal to seeing the deity. But it was ordained by the Lord that the devotee should come physically to Tiruvilwamala and offer prayers. Legend says that, long ago, temple preists lighted lamp on the top storey of the gopuram and some of them went to Tirunavayi to see if the lights could be really seen from there. They did saw the lamps and showed it to others. The very next day the gopuram was struck by lightning and thunder and was razed to the ground. The gopuram has not been rebuilt ever since that incident.

The temple has an enormous courtyard. To the southeast side of the courtyard is the idol of Veera Hanuman . There were two instances when fire broke out in this temple. It is well known that after the installation of this idol of Veera Hanuman, such a calamity never arised. This idol has immense power and devotees offer Vadamala, Vettilamala, Aval nivedyam etc to please Anjaneya, the beloved devotee of Lord Sreerama. To the north west side of the courtyard is the banyan tree. To circle this tree is very auspicious (arrayal pradakshinam) and to see the lizard in this particular tree is considered as having the darshan of Lord Guruvayoorappan.

Punarjani

To the east of Tiruvilwamala temple is a cave, known as the Punarjani. It is believed that trekking through this cave would end one’s cycle of birth and deaths. This cave will be open to the public only on the Ekadasi day in the Malayalam month of Kumbha.
 

Festivals

  

The important annual festival here is Ekadasi. On this day, hundreds of devotees observe fast and forgo their sleep. They spend their time in temples in prayers and witnessing a variety of entertainment programmes by famous artists. It is a belief that Lord Guruvayurappan will come all the way from Guruvayur and visit Vilwadrinathan on this particular day. Niramala, is another great festival which falls in the month of chingam.The lights and the decoration with flower garlands is one of exquisite beauty. Ramanavami is also celebrated with great splendour
