This is one of the largest Bhagavathy temples in Kerala, located in the outskirts of the Vadakumnathan temple ground, Paramekkavu, in Thrissur District. The main deity of this temple is Devi Vaishnavy, an incarnation of Goddess Durga, who believed to have come here along with Kuruppal (head of an aristocratic Nair family) from Thirumadhamkunnu, on his umbrella.
This is considered as one of the largest Devi temples in Kerala and is also one of the participating temples of the famous Thrissur Pooram festival. This ceremony has a procession of fifteen decorated elephants, who walk from Paramekkavu to the Vadakkumnathan temple, where the Pooram festival is celebrated. A large number of tourists visit this place to witness this auspicious event, which is truly captivating and exciting.
This temple can be easily visited by tourists from the Thrissur railway station, which is only 2 km from the main temple ground. The Cochin International Airport is only 52 km from this temple and the tourists can easily commute here through a taxi or bus.
