CHOTTANIKARA

One day he had a dream in which Mother Sakti appeared before him and told him that the cow, which brought about his transformation, was Herself. She also informed him that the presence of Her idol and that of Vishnu would sanctify the cowshed. The next day Kannappan repaired the shed and found the idols. He built a temple and spent the rest of his life in the Worship of the Devi.

After the death of Kannappan the temple fell in ruins, as the place became uninhabited. One day a pulaya (outcaste) woman who had come to cut grass sharpened her scythe against a stone, which started to ooze blood. The horror-stricken woman shrieked aloud and the Pulayas in the neighborhood came running to the spot. They, in turn, informed the learned Edathu Nambudiri, who, visiting the spot, realized that there was divine Chaitanya of Parasakti at the place. He bought malar and offered pooja.
