Temple History :

Kadampuzha Sri Bhagavathi Temple is a major pilgrimage center located at Kadampuzha, in Malappuram district of Kerala state. The Bhagavathi Temple is located 3 km north of Vettichira on the highway connecting Kozhikode (Calicut) to Thrissur. Sri Bhagavathi Temple is the most powerful temple in this region and is believed to have been consecrated by Jagadguru Sri Adi Sankaracharya. The temple is dedicated to goddess Durga(Form of Goddess Parvati), a Devi. There is no idol in the temple. The origin of Kadampuzha Temple is associated with the Mahabharatha. Madambiyar Kavu Temple is another important shrine located a short distance away from the Kadampuzha. Muttarukkal is an important offering at Kadampuzha Devi Temple in Malappuram, Kerala. Muttarukkal literally means “keeping away obstacles”. The ritual involves breaking of coconuts by the temple priest in front of Goddess Kadampuzha Bhagavathi into two equal halves. Devotees pray before the Goddess to ward off any problems in life and if the coconut is correctly broken into two equal halves, then it is believed that the problems will be removed. The Mutturakkal offering is being done only in the morning between 05:00 AM and 07:00 AM on weekdays. On Sundays, in addition to the morning time, the Muttarukkal offering is also allowed held between 3:00 PM and 5:45 PM. Poomoodal is another important offering of the temple. Karthikai day of Vrishchikam month (November – December) is grandly celebrated here. This year Kadampuzha Karthikai Festival is on 5th December 2014.

During Karthikai day in the month Vrishchikam (November–December), is considered a special day and is celebrated in a grand manner at the temple. The deity is considered more powerful on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. Annadaana (food offering) is made daily at the temple. The coconuts are to be “offered” by carrying them in non-plastic bags. The temple, owned by Malabar Devaswom Board under the Government of Kerala, is administered through a trust consisting of the Hindu-Variar family and nonhereditary co-opted trustees.
