Kundukavu Bhagavathi Temple Amballur – Thrissur

Kundukavu Bhagavathi temple is located in Alagappanagar village on Chalakudy – Thrissur road in Thrissur district, Kerala. The temple is east of Amballur junction. The shrine is dedicated to Goddess Bhagavathi and her darshan is towards east. There are two main deities in the temple Goddess Durga and Goddess Bhadrakali.

The prathishta in the temple is Kannadi Shila Prathishta. Legend has it that the Bhagavathi worshipped here was brought by Kaplingottu Namboothiri from Kodungallur (avahichu kondu varika). He did the prathishta at Kundukavu.

In order to keep a check on the roudra bhavam (ferociousness of Goddess Kali), the Namboothiri performed bhajanam in Chottanikkara temple and brought Goddess Durga here (avahichu kondu varika).

There is a unique ritual of taking Sangada Para to houses when there is an outbreak of pox (vasoori).

The temple belonged to Kaplingottu Mana. The temple was also associated with Nalla Nattu Naduvazhi. Currently the temple is managed by Amballur NSS Karayogam.
