A mosque dedicated to Ayyappan's lieutenent Vavar swami stands next to Kadutha swami shrine at the foot of the pilgrimage path, both as a form of guardian deities. Some pilgrims offer a prayer to both, before beginning their Sabarimala forest and mountain pilgrimage hike.  According to Kent, the mosque does not contain mortal remains of Vavar swami though the mosque near Sabarimala includes a grave, and no one can date Vavar nor provide when and where he lived, so he may be a myth. The Vavar legend and palli shrines may reflect the Hindu approach to accepting and co-opting legendary figures or saints of other religions within its fold. 
The overriding aim of the Physical Education curriculum is to educate students by providing a wide variety of different practical experiences. The Department seeks to develop the individual student’s opportunity to participate in range of different sports and activities, improve and develop their physical competency and skills, general fitness and understanding of how to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. By providing a broad and balanced curricular and extensive extra-curricular programme, we hope to encourage the students to become lifelong participants in sport and physical activity, whilst developing independent thinkers who are confident young people.
Worship that is ritually correct but empty of the realities it symbolizes makes religion irrelevant. Only when liturgy does justice and connects the life of Jesus to our lives is it effective as Christian formation. Pope Francis seeks to re-evangelize the church today by making the same connections. He is scripting his papacy from the Lectionary readings he preaches on at his daily Masses. By word and example, the life the church is being proclaimed as the life, death and resurrection of Jesus unfolding within the liturgical year and within history.
