Chakkulathukavu Sree Bhagavathy Temple has a rich 3000 year old history associated with it. It is open to people of all faiths and attracts believers from across the State. The Mother Goddess Durga is worshipped here. The famous rivers Pamba and Manimala flow on both sides of the temple.

Chakkulathukavu Pongala is the most famous festival associated with the temple. It falls on the Malayalam month of Vrischikam (November/ December) and is a grand affair. 'Pongala nivedayam' is a sweet dish that is considered a favorite of the Goddess and women flock in large numbers to the temple to offer the same.
