A TEMPLE WITH A PECULIAR FOOD OFFERING







 The Divya Kshetram TIRUPPULIYUR -Kuttanaadu  is located 5 Kms from Chengannur in Kerala. The presiding deity is Mayappiran in a standing posture and the Goddess  is Porkodi Nachiyar. The sacred water is pragna saras and the sanctum sanctorum is purushothama vimanam.

The legend has it that saptarishis worshipped the Lord proclaiming that He is the paradevata and the Lord took the name Mayapiran at this kshetram. This temple is believed to have been built by Beemasena of the pandavas.

Since this temple is associated with Bhima there is a peculiar offering of food prepared of 400 measures of rice, to the presiding deity in this kshetram.
