Temple History :

Goddess Bhagavathi temple located at Kanichukulangara is a most famous and powerful temple. is The history of this ancient institution can be known from myths. The case of Kanichukulangara Devi temple is not distinct. There is a saying in the myth that “Aravukattamma Arinnu vannu Kandamagalathamma kandu vannu, Kanichukulangaraamma kallichu vannu”. Later Kallichukulangara came to be known as Kanichukulagara. It said that “Kanichukulagara amma came by playing on a ship”.

When Devi reached this place which is related (coastal) to sea the shipwrecked and a Namboodiri installed the Devi in its current position. The ruins of the wrecked ship are said to be seen in the big pond at the eastern side of the temple. The current ‘Thakil’ is obtained from this pond. Some antique properties were obtained when cleaning the aged pond recently. The pond is being protected by constructing a wall around it since there is an unbroken relationship between the pond and the Devi. The ‘Arattu’ is being performed in this pond.
