Velayudhan Pillai hailed from Kuttanad, was born to the family of `Padanairs’ at Padanair House, Pullangady, Champakulam, Alapuzha district.
He was a deeply religious, charitable and compassionate man. He had no pride about him and had no greed for the material comforts of the world. To him every individual was equal. He had implicit faith in Lord Ayyappa. Not only was he instrumental in the initial formation of Ayyappa Seva Sangham but he was also responsible for evolving tacit guidelines for its growth in physical and moral terms. To this day, these guidelines act as the `Commandments’ guiding the functioning of the Sangham.
He was a regular visitor to Sabarimala till the year of his death. In 1999, at his birth place in Pullangady, Champakulam, (Alapuzha District) a sacred Ayyappa temple was consecrated in memory of the late Dr PA Velayudhan PIllai.
