This temple is located in Thanikkudam on the banks of Puzhakkal River, also called Thanikkudam River. It is dedicated to Goddess Bhadrakali, in the form of 'Vanadurga'. It is famous for 'arattu' ceremony during monsoon season, when the river is flooded and enters the main sanctum, thus submerging the whole idol and is one of the rare temples with such a ceremony. The temple is under the control of Cochin Devaswom Board. Devotees take a dip in the water along with the idol during the ‘arattu’ ceremony.
