Sabarimala is the most visited pilgrim center in India. As part of the crowd management initiative of Kerala Police, they have developed a portal for Sabarimala Online Booking. The pilgrimage season in Sabarimala is from October to January every year. Devotees visiting Sabarimala are increasing year on year. The portal for Sabarimala Online Booking is a boon for pilgrims visiting from distant parts of the country. Online Booking for Sabarimala pilgrimage for 2012 season has been started in the Sabarimalaq.com portal developed by Kerala Police.
Pilgrims can book their place in the Darsan Queue for Sabarimala up to 8 weeks in advance. Last year Sabarimala Online Booking facility was provided in a subdomain of the Kerala Police website. This year, as part of its online initiatives, Kerala Police have launched a full fledged portal for this.
Pilgrims have to furnish their name, age, address, photograph and identity card details while booking through the portal. Convenient date and time for darshan can be chosen, subject to availability of the slot. Once the slot is successfully booked, the queue reservation coupon can be downloaded. They have to carry a print out of the coupon along with the identity card at the time of darshan.
