Chottanikkara Devi Temple, Ernakulam

Visit Chottanikkara Devi Temple, one of the most popular shrines in south India. Arrive early if you wish to join in the prayers, but keep in mind that in order to enter, men need to be dressed in a veshti with no upper-body garment. Many devotees come here to get rid of evil spirits and cure mental sicknesses, but you can also stop by to escape the city hustle for a while and soak in some of the temple's peaceful and spiritual atmosphere. Use our Kochi (Cochin) road trip planner to arrange your visit to Chottanikkara Devi Temple and other attractions in Kochi (Cochin).

  • Please reach early and avoid the 11.30 AM darshan. they will close. We were infront of the line so we could manage great darshan but they closed after we moved on. So plan your visit accordingly.  more »
