About Kodungallur Bhagavathy Temple

Chottanikkara Bhagavathy Temple is popular not only for its lively pujas but also for its stunning architecture. It is believed that the place on which the temple stands at present was once a dense forest that was infested by the Yakshas and the Rakshasas (celestial beings of Hindu mythology). The locals tell you the legend of a tribesman Kannapaan. Do take out time and listen to the interesting tale. The divinity and presiding deity is the mother of Goddess known as ‘Rajarajeshwari’ or Adiparasakthi who is worshiped at the temple in three forms- Saraswathy in the morning, Lakshmi at noon and Goddess Durga in the evening. The drape colors of the goddesses are white, crimson and blue respectively. It is believed that if a sick person offers prayers at the Chottanikkara Bhagavathy Temple, they are blessed with a healthy life thereafter. On the same pedestal where there is the idol of Bhagavathy, there is also one of Mahavishnu. Other deities worshiped at the temple are Lakshmi and Narayana, Brahmna, Lord Shiva, Lord Ganesha, Subramanta, and Sastha. The ‘Guruthi Pooja’ in the Keezhkkaavu temple should not be missed by you. The pleasant atmosphere of the temple along with mild chants of prayers fill up the devotees and visitors with peace and positive energy.

Historical Context: This temple is 1500 years old. This temple was built in the middle of the forest by a forest dweller
