Welcome to Panayannarkavu Devi Temple Sri Bhadrakali Temple at Valiya Panayannarkavu is the most famous among such temples in Kerala. References to this temple are found in Aithihyamala and Unnineelisandesham, the classics of Malayalam Literature. The pleasant natural surroundings of Parumala and the grace of the Mother Goddess in her ferocious Avatar as Bhadrakali, bestowing Her blessings on the devotees are famous even in other States.
Tall Palmira trees and pristine green forests, and the idols of Nagarajas and Nagayakshis which bestow their boons on those devoted to them, can be found at five spots in the Complex. The Omnipotent Lord Siva , installed during the Thretayuga ( about five thousand years back) by Sage Parasuram faces the Holy Pampa river, Westrward. Devi Bhadrakali, in Her Avatar as the slayer of Dariakasura faces East.
Panayannarkavu is one of the few temples well-known for their Wall Paintings. It has not been easy to determine the antiquity of these paintings. Based on themes from the Devibhagawatam Ramayana and other epics, these painting appear to be of long vintage and are of exquisite beauty.
