Vadakkanthara Temple, Palakkad Overview

Dedicated to Goddess Karnaki, who finds mention in the Tamil epic Silapathikaram as a vengeful wife and a legendary woman, the Vadakkanthara Thirupuraikkal Bhagavathy Temple is the only temple in Kerala that celebrates the goddess in her complete idolic form. Apart from its religious reverence, the Temple is known for its sprawling architecture exemplifying the beautiful traditional Kerala architecture.

Apart from Karnaki, the temple also has smaller temples for various other deities like Lord Ayyappa, Lord Ganesha, Lord Nagaraj, et al. The temple opens everyday at 04:30 A.M. till 11:30 A.M., and again from 4:30 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. There is no entry fee.
