Dedicated to Kirathaparvathi, Sree Kadampuzha Bhagavathy temple has no idol. Poojas are performed at a hole (about 6 cm in diameter) into which the Goddess is said to have disappeared after showing Her presence to Adi Sankaracharya. Poomoodal or offering of thecchi flowers (Ixora indica) is an important ritual here. Mutturakkal is another offering made by breaking coconuts. The temple is situated about 3 km north of Vettichira on the highway connecting Kozhikode (Calicut) to Thrissur.

The hole, divined to be the one created by the mighty arrow of Lord Shiva that summoned Ganaga for quenching Parvathi’s thirst, was perceived as the Devine Power Source by Adi Shankara and hence there is no idol to represent the Presence here. That there are no idols here is also a unique aspect of Kadampuzha. To mark this place and for the common man’s reference, a Thidambu or Arch is kept on top. Only during the “Poo Moodal” rite the Thidumbu is removed and the hole exposed.

The deity in the Sree Kadampuzha Bhagavathy temple is more famous and cowreded on Sundays, Tuesdays and Fridays. Karthika day in the Malayalam month Vrischikam (November-December) is celebrated in this temple with great significance.
