Keezhadoor Sree Durga temple is located at Meladoor near Alathur village in Thrissur district in Kerala. The 8-day annual temple festival at Keezhadoor Sree Durga temple ends with Arattu on the Karthika nakshatra day in Medam month.

This is one among the 108 Durga temples in Kerala. The main offering in the temple is Brahmani Pattu for early and good marriage.

The main deity worshipped in the temple is Goddess Durga. She is consecrated in a circular (vatta sreekovil) sanctum which faces east. The murti worshipped in the temple is 5 feet tall.

The murti in the shrine is of a unique sankalpam. She has had her mangalsutra daranam but her marriage had not taken place. Thus the deity is a virgin.

As the deity is a virgin there are no Upa Devatas inside the main temple compound. All Upa Devatas including Shiva, Ganapathy, Ayyappan and Rakshas are worshipped outside the main temple compound.

The temple is maintained by Kshetra Samrakshana Samiti.
