Thiruvalathur Bhagavathi Temple

A place of worship that creates a sublime aura of sacredness

Every temple is beautiful in its own right. However, there are some temples that emanate some extra charm of divinity. You can feel it when you close your eyes and be one with supreme power. Thiruvalathur Bhagavathi Temple is one such place of worship that creates a sublime aura of sacredness.

The temple has something soulful about it – be it architecture, rituals, myths or just the very ambience. Situated on the banks of the Shokansini river in Thiruvalathur, the “Randu Moorthi” temple occupies a significant position among the 108 Durga temples of Kerala. The temple worships two deities – “Annapoorneswari” in Keezhkavu and “Mahishasuramardini” in Melkkavu. The Annapoorneswari idol is believed to be “Swayambhu” which means that it is of divine origin. The Mahishasuramardini idol is 7 ft tall and carved out of wood. What stands out about the temple is its stunning architectural splendour. The circular sanctum sanctorum is one of the main attractions of the temple.

The exquisite woodwork and stone sculptures of the temple give the structure a distinctive look. About 4,000 stone lamps are fixed on the outer walls of the temple. There are various legends and myths about the temple that makes its story even more appealing.
