The department of Homeopathy, Govt. of Kerala has started two Free Homeopathic hospitals at Sabarimala (Famous Hindu pilgrimage center located in Kerala, India), one at Sabarimala Sannidhanam and the other at Pampa. Initially, during each Sabarimala season, a homeopathic dispensary used to function. But now, both hospitals function round the clock, and have more facilities to manage a huge number of devotees visiting Sabarimala. Each hospital has got several doctors, paramedical staffs, attenders, pharmacists and other facilities. The medicines are supplied by HOMCO, a homeopathic pharmacy sponsored by the government of Kerala. Since the beginning of this pilgrimage season, almost 7000 devotees have already visited these homeopathic hospitals for preventive and curative treatment.
