Kumaranalloor Bhagavathy Temple

The Bhagavathy Temple at Kumaranalloor also known as Karthiyayani Devi Temple is situated 6 km from Kottayam. The temple has been identified by Sree Adi Sankaracharya as one of the five important centres in India for Durga Ardhana. Legend says that this temple was originally built to house a shrine to Subramanya. Renowned for its gopurams, i.e the temple tower constructed in Tamil Nadu architectural style, the temple structure is round in shape with attractive mural paintings and wood carvings. The idol of the Goddess Bhagavathy is in standing position and is about 3 feet high. The annual Trikarthika festival is celebrated in the  month of Vrischikam (November-December). The major highlight of this nine day long festival is the Karthika Vilakku.
