LORD OF VAIKOM

The uttupura or the feeding shed is on the northern side and beyond it is the temple-tank. The area of the entire temple is nearly eight acres. There are four gateways-one on each side but they are not imposing like other temples in the South. There are three or four Majestic peepal trees in the courtyard, which add to the scenic beauty.

Pananchikkal Bhagawati

On the southern side of the temple courtyard there is a small shrine for Goddess Pananchikkal. This is a Vana-Durga exposed to the sun and rain and as such without any roof.  Once there was a Yakshi (demi-goddess of evil aspect) roaming in the temple premises, harassing humans and animals- the terrified people approached Vyaghrapada Maharshi for protection. The sage turned to Stambha Vighneswara on the northeastern side of the temple at the entrance. (There is another image of Ganaapti inside the temple.)
