entrance to uralkuzhy thertham -a  nature water  fall near pandithavalam one devotee at a time  can enter to this ural shaped nature cavity for the holy dip

Uralkuzhi Theertham is on the pullumedu sabarimala forest path , It is near  to pandi thavalam, Sannidhanam. The name of the place is derived from the shape formed due to the falling of water on the rock (‘Ural’is a grindstone with a small dip used for making flour). 
Devotees usually take a holy dip in this teerth, which can wash away the sins of their life.
