Chengannur Mahadeva Temple

This temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathy, is believed to have been built by the legendary traditional architecture and sculpture Perunthachan over 1,500 years ago. Thriputharattu is the main festival of this temple. It is associated with the menstruation of Goddess Parvathy. The four-day unique festival is celebrated when the sign of menstruation is seen on the vesture of the Goddess.

The temple has a beautiful Koothambalam (temple theatre), stunning Mandapams (pavilions) and a mesmerizing mukhamandapam (frontage of the sanctum), covered with exquisite woodwork.

Another peculiarity of the temple is that the idol of the Goddess here is made with an alloy of five metals (Panchaloham). Chengannur Mahadeva Temple is situated near Chengannur Railway Station in Alappuzha district, Kerala.
