Thottipal Bhagavati Temple   Leave a comment

Thottipal Bhagavati Temple is located in the Thrissur district of Kerala  state, India. It is 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) from National Highway 47, near Pudukad.

Adherents to the faith believe it to be one of the 108  Devi temples installed by  Parashurama and it is known for the Thottipal pakalpooram, an event where the deity is taken out of the temple in procession.

It is considered to be the sister to the Arattupuzha Shasta temple. This ancient temple was destroyed in the attacks by  Tipu Sultan and was in a state of distress for centuries. The temple was renovated in late 19th century.

Thottipalamma is considered by believers to be all benevolent and to give strength to her devotees so that they may counter the struggles of life.
