Chettikulangara Bhagavathy Temple is one of the most revered as well as one of the most visited temples in Kerala. Second only to Sabarimala in terms of its patronage, this temple has maitained a steady throng of devotees through many ages.
This 1200 years old temple has a unique feature attributed to it. The presiding deity of this temple changes her form to accommodate three major incarnations of Goddess Bhagwathy – She is Maha Sarawathi by day, Maha Lakshmi by noon and Sri Durga in the evening.
There are a number of folk, traditional and historical stories woven around this temple and all of them only work to accentuate the charm of the presiding deity and the many sub-deities in the temple complex.
The temple is known for its many festivals which involve vibrant colours, music of the drums, traditional dance and the unmistakable spiritual elation that is thereby reached.
