CHOTTANIKARA

Outside the main temple on the north-east there is a flight of stone-steps which leads to the famed Kizhkavu, the abode of Bhadrakali mentioned earlier. This is also one-foot granite image facing west clothed in a raiment made of panchaloha. This is said to have been installed by Vilvamangalam Swamiyar who had retrieved it from inside the tank in front of the shrine. A landmark here, which cannot be missed, is of course the Paala tree described earlier, with hundreds of nails driven into its trunk.

The Festivals

The annual festival of the temple comes in Kumbha (February- March). It lasts, for nine days starting with flag hoisting on Rohini asterism and ending on Uttram day. A special feature is the daily arattu during the festival, not on the last day as in other temples.
