Kottankulangara Devi Temple

The Kottankulangara Devi Temple is a famous Hindu temple located in Chavara, a town near Kollam (Quilon) in the state of Kerala, India. The temple is dedicated to Goddess Bhagavathy, an incarnation of Goddess Durga. The temple is known for its unique and elaborate annual festival called the “Kottankulangara Chamayavilakku” or “Kottankulangara Bharani” festival.

The Kottankulangara Bharani festival is celebrated in the Malayalam month of Kumbham (usually February-March) and is marked by a procession of men dressed in women’s attire, carrying traditional lamps, known as chamayavilakku. This unique tradition is believed to be an offering to the goddess and is attended by thousands of devotees and tourists every year. The festival also features various cultural performances, processions, and rituals.

The temple’s vibrant atmosphere during the festival attracts people from different parts of Kerala and beyond. It’s a significant cultural and religious event in the region, showcasing the devotion and the rich cultural heritage of Kerala.
