Some of the important sightseeing that you can see on Pathanamthitta are

• Sabarimala - A temple located in the hill named Sabarimala which is in Pathanamthitta, Kerala. This temple is surrounded by thick forest which is having leopards, elephants and other wild animals . A river flowing through Pathanamthitta called Pamba is very important to Hindus. Lord Ayappa is the God of Sabarimala Temple. During their pilgrimage devotees of Lord Ayappa offer prayers to Vavar (a Muslim believed to be the greatest friend of Lord Ayyappa) which is a practice upholding perfect communal harmony between the religious communities Hindus and Muslims of Kerala.

• Aranmula Kannadi - it is the name of a mirror that is distinct & unique to Aranmula place in Kerala, India. A 45 centimeters tall Aranmula Kannadi is protected as a rare item in the British Museum in London.

• Adivasis - few settlements of tribal origin called Adivasis (Tribes) still exist in the forests of Patthanamthitta. These Adivasi settlements are near to the places called Thanithoddu and Chittar in Patthanamthitta.
