Chandranellur Bhagavathi Temple




Chandranellur Bhagavathi Temple lies at Kalakattu Illam near Purakkunnu in Kannur District. It is about 25 km from Payyanur.

The story behind the temple tells that a Namboothiri from Kalakattu Illam reached the place known as Manathana. Blessed by Goddess Kali, he got a Soolam (a type of rod), Kannadi (Mirror) and Kiridam (Crown) as present. The crown was kept at the Illam, which turned as Chandranellur Bhagavati.

Malliyottu Palottukavu Aadaam Kovval, Karippal Nagam, Vettakkorumakan Kshethram and Puliroopa Kali Temple are the major places of worship nearby.

Buses ply on the Payyanur–Purakkunnu route.
