Choorakode Sree Durga Bhagavathi Temple – Information

 Choorakode Sree Durga Bhagavathi temple is located at Kandassankadavu in Thrissur district, Kerala. The temple is one among the 108 Durga temples in Kerala. There are two main deities in the temple – Goddess Durga and Goddess Bhadrakali.

The darshanam of Choorakode Bhagavathy temple is towards west. Both the deities are worshipped in the same sreekovil. Goddess Bhadrakali is worshipped in a corner of the sreekovil and the murti is of swayambhu sankalpam (divine origin).
