(4.6/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Visit Chottanikkara Bhagavathy 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.

  • Lord Shiva is also worshiped at the temple. People suffering from mental illnesses commonly visit the temple, as Bhagawati is thought to cure her devotees. One should not miss the 'Guruthi Pooja' in the 'Keezhkkaavu' temple at Chottanikkara. This is a ritual done at late evening to invoke the goddess. Earlier 'Guruthi Pooja' was done only on Fridays. But nowadays, it is performed every day.
  • Powerful and ancient Devi temple, beautiful atmosphere around this area and such a calm and peaceful area. Crowded on hindu special days and festival seasons.
  • Beautiful ancient Devi temple. Mookambika of Kerala. The keezhkavu is very intetesting. Extremely crowded on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Amme Narayana!

  • It is very immense with the different temples and the ghat. There is a huge number of people that every day goes to pray to this amazing temple and is interesting to see the procession around the temple, the walk to the other temple that is next to the ghat. It is impressive
