The Sreekovil, also known as the Sanctum sanctorum, is the building in which the idol of the deity in a Hindu temple is installed.

The area around the Sreekovil is referred as to the Chuttampalam, which generally includes other deities and the main boundary wall of the temple. Typically there is a Pradakshina area in the Sreekovil and one outside, where devotees can take 1, 3 or Pradakshinas.
