A ‘Rooster Temple’ In Kerala, India – Something Truly Unique.
Pazhayannur Bhagavathy Temple is believed to be more than 500 years old. In those times this temple – known as Pallipurath Mahavishnu – was dedicated to Lord Vishnu.
Worship of Divine Mother in the form of Bhagvathy started after She chose this place as Her abode. The erstwhile king of Kochi was a deep devotee of Divine Mother. Once he went to Kashi (Varanasi) to offer his prayers to Ma & receive Her blessings & asked Her to come to Kochi along with him. Ma agreed & reached Pazhayannur. They say that the unusual & unique topography, natural beauty, vegetation & dwellers of this place left a deep in Mother’s heart & she sat near the actual Vishnu temple called Pallipurath Mahavishnu.
