  • This centre of worship and faith has in store many unique practices and rituals, and the temple architecture itself stands testimony to this aspect. The Parassinikadavu Muthappan (Siva) Temple on the banks of the Valapatnam River attracts people from all sections of the society; irrespective of religion, caste and promotes the essence of "Vasudaiva Kutumbakam - The whole world is one family." The origin of the Muthappan temple is connected to the appearance of a child who roamed the region with a string of interesting incidents and later vanished without a trace. The incidents up to the point of his disappearance later made the denizens feel the divine presence of Muthappan (Siva) who immediately erected a place of worship, which today is popularly known as the Parassinikadavu Muthappan Temple. The temple is also a popular destination for travellers and pilgrims to savour the charm of Theyyam, a ritual that is performed here on a daily basis. Men adorning masks and costumes with a riot of colours perform this temple art form and it represents conflict between good and evil, with good ultimately emerging victorious.

  • Its one of the old temple in kerala. The Theyyam performed here is awesome. The place is just nature friendly.
  • One of the most beautiful temples in kerala. the big dogs in the temple is really awasome.. i love this temple. Ohm nama shivaaya
  • One of its kind is kerala, Muthappan temple will surely satisfy devotees and the tourists alike. I found the rituals and the traditions of this sanctuary to be as unorthodox as it is elegant. A must visit place in Kannur
  • Muthappan temple, visit atleast once, u will be a frequent visiter after that
