Having left chitrakooTa, LORD rAma (along with lakshmaNa) reached pampA teera and stayed there. There, LORD saw the devotion of shabari, and being pleased with it, granted her mukti.
LORD rAma then listened to the words of hanumanta and accepted the friendship of sugreeva. He then pierced and killed 7 daityas who were in the form of 7 tAla trees and were strong due to the boon of Lord Brahma.
After that, LORD killed vAli and established sugreeva, the son of sUrya, as the King (of kiShkinda). The LORD then stayed in the cave of mAlyavanta mountain.
May such a LORD rAma protect us!


Shabari was actually an apsara who had been cursed by shachi dEvi for having shown her pomp and attitude in front of Indra.
LORD rAma destroyed 7 daityas with a single arrow by piercing the 7 palm trees in which they were staying.
Once sugreeva became King, the rainy season started. Therefore, LORD rAma waited for the appropriate season to arrive for the search, by staying in a cave in mAlyavat mountain
