Chettikulangara Devi Temple

#Temple in Alleppey

Chettikulangara Devi Temple is one of the most renowned Hindu temples in Kerala. Located at the Land of Rituals, Tradition, Religion and Devotion, the temple established 1200 years ago, stands in glory today to honour the Goddess Sree Bhadrakali. It is found in the centre of the oldest 4 karas (territories) among the 13 karas.

It is believed that the Goddess takes up 3 forms - Maha Saraswati in the morning, Maha Lakshmi in the noon and Sree Bhadrakali in the evening. A major income in the temple is the Chanthattam - sap from teakwood, devotees believe will bestow prosperity on them. Known as the Kumbamela of the South, the Kumbabharani Festival is celebrated with great pomp and gaiety. Dance rituals are performed to honour the Goddess on this auspicious day. Enjoy a mix of internal bliss and peace in this holy land. Recently UNESCO collected details about the temple and its customs (Kuthiyottam, Kumbhabharani) in order to examine whether the temple is eligible for inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
