Puthiyakavu Devi Temple

The deity of the Puthiyakavu temple is Bhadrakali, the Goddess. The main festival falls in the month of Meenam (March/April) and is an eight-day affair. Two rituals that are part of the festival are the Kalamezhuthu and Kalampooja. The rituals – the drawing of elaborate pictures of deities on the floor using colourful powders accompanie by singing - attract a lot of devotees.  Theeyattu, another ritual, is based on the story of Goddess Bhadrakali, returning after killing the demon, Darika, and describing her exploit to Lord Shiva.
