Pampa River Project

Pampa River located in the state of Kerala, India. Pampa is the sacred river of the
hindu devotees and they offer regular rituals on the banks of the river.

Pilgrims who visit the Sabarimala Temple usually take a dip in the Pampa River
before climbing the hill to reach the temple. The annual Sabarimala pilgrimage
attracts millions of devotees from all over India and abroad.

Pampa River is also plays a major source of irrigation for the agricultural lands in
Pathanamthitta and Alleppey districts in Kerala. The river is also known for its scenic
beauty and attracts many tourists who visit the nearby hill stations and wildlife
sanctuaries. “Save River Pampa and Green Earth” are the sustainable nature

areas of the Pampa River garbage free and to plant fruit trees and medicinal plants
