Temple History :

Puthur, Shri Tthirpuraikal Bhagavathi temple is one of the ancient and powerful temples of goddess Shakthi in the whole of Malabar. Goddess Bhadrakali is the presiding deity worshiped in this temple. Along with Goddess Bhadrakali, the sanctum sanctorum(Garbhalaya) also has the divine presence of Lord Maha Vishnu, Goddess Durga, and Lord Ganesha. This is the most ancient temple in this region which was supposed to be built 100 years ago.The temple of Bhadrakali is located at a distance of 2 km from the town of Palakkad is of much historical importance. The enthusiasm of the people of this small place called Puthur resulted in the present-day shrine built some 75 yrs. back around the old banyan tree where the goddess was believed to be residing earlier. It is believed that the Devi here fulfills all the wishes of her true devotees.

The main festival of this temple called the Puthur Vela commences in mid-March and the curtain falls on the month-long celebrations in mid-April. The main ritual that takes place during this festival is the ‘Thol Pavakutha’. it is a form of puppet show where in the story of Ramayana is depicted. The belief goes that Devi enjoys the divine story of Lord Rama every year through this form of a recital. Very few temples of Kerala still retain this art form. Apart from this, all other temple art forms of Kerala feature during the celebrations. The highlight of this month-long festivity is the Music and Dance festival that has grown into one of the prestigious cultural events of the state.
