Description
Thirumandhamkunnu Bhagavathy Devi Temple is situated in Malappuram in the Southern state of Kerala. Even though the main deity of the temple is Lord Shiva, but significance is given to Bhagavathy due to some special reasons. Other deity in the temple is Lord Ganesha.
History
King Madhantha was a successful ruler of this territory in ancient days. He was also an ardent devotee of Lord Shiva. He went all the way to Mount Kailash and performed a severe penance. Lord Shiva answered the penance by appearing before, and asked, what the king wishes to have?. Being a selfless man, the king could not think of any other thing to ask and so he asked for a Lingam that he could worship for the rest of his life. Considered his penance and his nature, Lord Shiva was completely pleased that he took the Lingam that was worshipped by Parvathi and gave it to him. The king carried the Lingam back on his head to Kerala and installed it in the temple. When Goddess Parvathi came to know that her favourite lingam is gone she got angry and sent her daughter Bhagavathy with a big army to get the idol back. When Goddess Bhagawathy reached the temple with the army, the light emanating from the idol was so bright that it was almost blinding the eyes. Hence the goddess and the army could not climb the hill, where the temple is situated. So they halted at the base of the temple and started throwing arms from there.
