was a remote and underdeveloped countryside village long ago.
People were mainly farmers rearing cattles. It was believed that
Kali Devi was omnipresent in the village looking after them, their
grievance and protecting them. In addition to this, Ganapathy,
Yogeeswaran, Nagar and lots of other deities had been worshipped
by them. Their faith in the Kali Devi increases day by day. They
had been talking experiences of relief and fortunes to their life.
They passed on the belief on Devi Kali to the next generation.
They believed firmly that Kali Devi is with them. The stories and
experiences related to Kali Devi spread to the neighbouring
villages. The neighbouring people began to come to Puthukulangara
Devi temple to offer their praise and receive the blessings
Devi Kali became more powerful, more
spreading and more firm. At this stage, a total change in the
style of the temple architect was done with the advice of the
astrologers and thanthri, the devotees decided to expand the
temple and its premises making it to the need of the days. They
did it by giving proper places for sub deities in the temple. As a
result of all these innovations people’s faith grew day by day,
the stories of their incredible experiences spread to the
neighbouring places. The people from distant places began to visit
the temple making it more and more famous. In short the place
developed to a place of pilgrimage as we see it today.
Bhadrakali utsavu, the well known temple festival commences on
Makayira day in 'Kumbha' month every year (in between February
last and march 1st). The festival is a high spirited in the
piety heart of the natives who become a part and parcel of the
epoch making celebrations from the beginning to the end. The
pious soul of the village people will be merged into the
rhythmic moments of the ten days.
