Variambath Madayil Bhagavathi Temple – Theyyam Thira Kaliyattam Festival

Variambath Madayil Bhagavathi temple is located at Mullool near Pattuvam in Kannur district, Kerala. The shrine is dedicated to Goddess Bhagavathi. The annual theyyam thira kaliyattam festival is held for a couple of days in February.

The important theyyams that can be witnessed at Variambath Madayil Bhagavathi temple are Madayil Chamundi theyyam, Vettakkorumakan theyyam and Oorpazhassi theyyam.

The main deity is worshipped in a small chathura sreekovil – the roofs and walls of it are traditionally decorated. Other deities are worshiped atop small square platforms and under trees. There are other smaller sreekovils too here. Important pujas and rituals are performed on Sankranti day in every Malayalam month.
