Temples and Temple Festivals of Kerala

Temples, temple festivals and other rituals of temples form an integral part of the life of Keralites. Kanathurkavu is an ancient Hindu temple in the heart of Kannur consecrated to the Goddess Mahadevi and later to Sree Rama also. During the annual festival in April, thousands of people go there to witness Theyyattom, dance ritual of the Mahadevi and other Gods.
Kodungallore, the ancient capital of Kerala lying about twenty miles north-west of Ernakulam had an interesting past. The Kodungallore Bhagavathy temple is one of the wealthiest temples in Kerala. Bhadrakali born of the third eye of Samhara Rudra, killed the demon Darika. It is to commemorate this event that the famous Bharani festival is celebrated in the Kodungallore Bhagavathy temple in Meenam (March-April) every year.
The ancient and historic Koodalmanickam temple is situated in the Manavalassery village, about nine kilometers from the Irinjalakuda railway station.The deity of this temple is Sree Bharatha who is generally not found consecrated in Kerala temples. This temple is in the true architectural pattern of Kerala temples. The festival here is held annually for all days in Medom (April-May) from Utram to Thiruvonam asterisms.
A Kerala Tourism made to coincide with these festivals will offer an experience of a lifetime.
