Pazhayannur is easily accessible from Ottapalam. At the centre of Pazhayannur is the Bhagavathy Temple presided by the main deity Pazhayannur Bhagavathy. It is believed that this deity was the family deity, ‘paradevatha’ of the erstwhile Royal family of Cochin and was brought by the Maharaja of Cochin himself. Adjoining to the Bhagavathy temple is the Siva temple. Traditionally the temple celebrates Aarattu, Niramaala and nine days of Navarathri vilakku. Pazhayannur is considered a place of historical importance, and is seen in the map of Nannangadis of Kerala. Nannangadis are the tombs of people who lived in the medieval times and are usually depicted in the shape of large pots.
