Parakkunnath Temple

Chellur Shri Parakkunnath Bhagavathi Temple is situated at Chellur in Kuttippuram Grama Panchayath. People, even from far away places, come to this temple, irrespective of their caste or creed, seeking relief from their sufferings and misfortunes. Devi treats all her devotees who come to her altar like her own children and fulfil all their desires. Pujas (offerings) are made to Goddess as per the system of 'Kowlachara'. Mukkola Chathan is also worshipped as a subordinate deity, considered as a dependent of Devi.

Some bad omens were noticed in this temple in the year 2000 and hence a 'Thamboola Prashna' was conducted in the same year under the spiritual guidance of Koottanadu Ravunni Panicker alias Kuttan Panicker, Tanur Preman Panicker and Kuttippuram Gokulan Panicker. Remedial measures were taken to please the goddess and to escape her wrath. The altar was renovated and Devi's 'Darubhimba' (idol), depleted of time's long passage was renovated and consecrated. The chief priest of temple, Bhramasree Vijayakrishnan conducted the consecration ceremony.
