Varakkal Devi Temple
 

Located on the shores of Arabian Sea, atop a hill near the West Hill railway station is the Varakkal Devi Temple. The temple dedicated to Goddess Durga is supposed to be the 108th and last Devi temple built by Sree Parasurama, the legendary creator of Kerala. It is believed that Parasurama ploughed this area out of divine insight and Devi (Goddess) with all her mercy appeared before him. 28 steps lead to the temple. Navratri festival is celebrated here on a grand scale. On the full moon day in the month of Thulam, Vavu Bali is observed, when thousands congregate here to perform the ancestral obsequies. On this day the sea is found to be surprisingly calm as if facilitating the religious observances.
