Chakkulathukavu Sree Bhagavathy Temple

Chakkulathukavu Sree Bhagavathy temple, dedicated to Mother Godess, is situated on the border of Pathanamthitta and Alappuzha districts at Neerettupuram. The temple, which has a history of over 3,000 years, is open to people of all faiths. The famous rivers Pamba and Manimala flow on either sides of the temple.

The annual Pongala festival, Chakkulathukavu Pongala, here, which falls in the Malayalam month of Vrischikam (November/ December), is a grand affair. On this day, thousands of women devotees who assemble on the temple premises and line up beside the roads leading to the temple and prepare 'pongala nivedyam', a sweet dish made of rice porridge, molasses and coconut gratings. The 'pongala nivedyam', prepared in earthen pots, is believed to be a favourite of the goddess. Only women are allowed to participate in this ritual.
