THE GODDESS WHO HAS PERIODS

It may be pointed out that Sonadri translated in Malayalam became Chenkunnu. Adding Ur that is village, it became Chenkunnur or Chengannur.

Thus the earlier temple at Chengannur is believed to have been built by the-Cheramans. Later, Nambudiris vvho were brought hereby Parashurama decided to renovate the same. (of the sixty-four villages into which Kerala Was divided after the advent of Nambudiris, Chongannur is the southern -most.) The Nambudiris were very prosperous and wealthy and were above all devout. They therefore Planned to build a really big, elaborate shrine. They approached the renowned temple architect, Perunthachan, the Viswakarma of Kerala.
