CHOTTANIKARA

In course of time, he however became old and ill and eventually the Cochin Government took over the management of the temple in 1064 according to Malayalam era (A.D, 1888). The rulers of   Cochin was a great devotee of the Bhagawati. They brought about several improvements. The nalambalam, srikoli, mandapam etc. were renovated and their roof covered with copper plates. The golden flagstaff was also installed by them besides building anapandal, bhajana pura (shed for bhajan) etc.

Today the temple is under the administrative c of the Cochin Devaswom Board. It can easily reached by bus from Ernakulam or Tripunithura. Thanks to the increasing faith in the healing power of Rarajeswari, the temple is flourishing as a popular pilgrim centre in Kerala, next only to Guruvayur.
