This temple at Chottanikara has several unique features establishing the eternal truth that in as much as there are devils, there aw gods or vice versa. This temple has successfully driven off terrifying dreadful devils possessing millions of people since its inception. It is here Dharmasastra is helping the presiding deity, MOTHER Rajarajeswari like a dutiful son in warding off minor elfins by driving nails into the pillars of his shrine to bind the harassing evil spirits, and preventing them from further evil plays; it is here trinkets filled with the sacred soil of the MOTHER'S pedestal are given to act as protective armours against evil spirits; it is this temple's Guruthi that fulfils many desires, and drives away evil spirits, if buried in the four corners of the houses; it is the Bhadrakali at Kizhakkavu of this temple renowned highly for releasing the victims once for all; it is this archamurthi exercising unlimited powers even without 'ashtabandana' or pratishtaapana rituals; it is here the MOTHER is installed along with the image of Narayana and receiving equal veneration; it is here the MOTHER is revealing in three different and distinct forms - Saraswathi, Bhadrakali and Durga; it is here Kannapan, a notorious dacoit turned into a holy priest on finding the idols of Narayana and Devi; and it is this MOTHER who is saving the devout worshippers through ethereal voices, when approached.

Famous for enshrining the most potent images of Universal MOTHER and Narayana, warding off the fiercest evil forces; proffering relief through amulets and guruthi; worshipped by lakes of possessed victims, this reputed temple is visited by a steady influx of adorers since ages, and deemed very popular next to that of the famous Guruvayur shrine.
