Located in Vatakara, Kozikode in Kerala.

The three rock cut caves in the temple premises are artfully engraved with beautiful carvings and fascinating murals.

The main shrine is dedicated to Goddess Durga with two adjacent shrines dedicated to Vishnu and Shiva.

Thacholi Othenan, the legendary martial hero of Kerala, used to worship here every day.

Built by Aryan Brahmins who migrated here 1500 years back.

During the festival Poorakkali, it is thronged by devotees.
