Chakkulathukavu Temple

Chakkulathukavu Temple is a renowned Hindu temple located near Thiruvalla in Neerattupuram, Thalavady Panchayat, Alappuzha District, Kerala, India. It is dedicated to the goddess Bhagavathi, also known as Chakkulathamma, who is considered to be an incarnation of the divine mother. The temple is a popular pilgrimage site, especially for devotees seeking blessings for fertility and overall well-being.

The Chakkulathukavu Temple is famous for its unique ritual called “Naari Puja” or “Pongala,” which is celebrated annually during the Malayalam month of Vrischikam (November-December). During this auspicious occasion, thousands of women gather at the temple to offer Pongala, a special sweet dish made of rice, jaggery, coconut, and other ingredients, to the goddess. This tradition is believed to bring prosperity and happiness to the lives of devotees.

Apart from the Pongala festival, various other rituals and ceremonies are performed throughout the year at the temple, attracting devotees from different parts of Kerala and beyond. The temple architecture and the serene surroundings of the region also contribute to its popularity as a spiritual destination.

As with any significant religious site, visitors are expected to follow the temple’s rules and etiquette when visiting Chakkulathukavu Temple. These may include dressing modestly, removing footwear before entering the temple premises, and maintaining a respectful attitude towards the sanctity of the place.

It’s always a good idea to check for the latest information from reliable sources before planning a visit.
