Kottiyoor Temples

Kottiyoor Temples are two famous Shiva temples, namely the Akkara Kottiyoor and the Ikkara Kottiyoor, in Kannur District of Kerala. These temples are located at Kottiyoor, on the banks of Bavali River.

Both temples are dedicated to Lord Shiva. An annual festival that lasts for 27 days held here is a major draw. This festival begins with Neyyattam on the Swati Day in Edavam (May-June) and concludes with Thirukalasattu. Neyyattam and Elannerattam are the special ceremonies connected with the festival.

Kottiyoor is about 60 km south-east of Kannur. The convenient railhead is at Thalassery, which is about 23 km south of Kannur.
