Chala Sreebhagavathy Temple Kannur

The Chala Bhagavathy Temple, located in Kannur, Kerala, is renowned for its idol of Goddess Bhadrakali, which was initially installed by the legendary figure Parashurama.

The goddess is depicted in a fierce form, so much so that even birds were said to be unable to fly in front of her idol. To mitigate this intensity, Parashurama installed a shrine dedicated to Goddess Durga, known for her gentle nature, in front of the Sree Bhadrakali shrine.This strategic arrangement allowed devotees to approach the divine presence of Goddess Bhadrakali with reverence and respect. .
