Varakkal Devi Temple in Kozhikode is considered to be the 108th and the last Devi temple built by Sree Parasurama, the legendary founder of Kerala. It is believed that Parasurama ploughed this area in order to make Devi (the goddess) appear. The main festival here is the Vavu Bali when thousands congregate to perform the ancestral obsequies. On this day, the sea is found to be surprisingly calm as if facilitating the religious observances.
