Mangaladevi Temple In Thekkady

Mangaladevi Temple in Thekkady is a 1000 years old temple which is located in the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary. This temple is located at a distance of 15 kilometers from Thekkady. Mangaladevi Temple is situated at an altitude of about 1300 metres above the sea level.

There is a very interesting phenomenon behind the Mangaladevi Temple in Thekkady. It is believed that Kannagi, who was the wife of Kovalan, killed her husband, as an act of revenge. Later, she set the city of Madurai on fire. Then, she went to heaven with his husband in a Pushpak Vimaan. An ancient Tamil king known as Chera Chenguttuvan, who was very inspired with this story, built the temple of Mangaladevi.

Mangaladevi Temple is located in the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, on the border of Kerala and Tamil Nadu. As a result, traditions of both the states can been seen clearly during the ‘pooja’ in this temple. This makes it even more pious. This temple is in a very dilapidated state.

Mangaladevi Temple opens only during the Chitra Poornima Day. For the rest of the year, this temple remains closed. Even then, many tourists and pilgrims throng to this temple just to get a glimpse of it.

During the Chitra Poornima annual festival at this temple, the temple and the neighboring towns see a heavy footfall of tourists.<readmore> The idol of the deity is decorated with flowers. Also, traditional pooja is performed by the priests. There is a huge rush of the tourists and pilgrims at the temple during the annual Chitra Poornima festival.

As an initiative to protect the ecosystem of the Wildlife Sanctuary, the forest department has made it compulsory for all the people visiting this temple to get a permission letter from the Wildlife Warden.

    • Trip to Thekkady

      It was good service from travel agent entire tour package was worth for me. Raisoone Travels & Holidays services was good, would like to recommend to others. Munnar was awesome, Thekkady is not much recommended as only wildlife is there. Houseboat was super amazing experience with best services and yummy food on board. Our driver was polite and helped us as a guide. Munnar and Houseboat experience was best.

    • Trip to Thekkady

      Very well planned trip by Mr Karan & Mr prakash . They guide in such a good way. I ve gone through 6D 5N kerala package from 3rd June 2019. We visited Munnar Thekkady & allepy. The hotel they provided us in Munnar was awesome. The black forest, I loved the food they provided . Weather was also cool as drizzling of rain is there in the evening hours. In thekkady we enjoyed elephant ride, magic show and kathak show. Allepy was bit disappointed. During evening hours they parked our boat beside becholar houseboat, they re shouting and staring at us as they haven't seen couple earlier. We were unable to sit even outside due to them. So overall trip was good but boathouse will be a blackmark. Thank you Mr Karan, Mr prakash & rocking trip

The driver ( Mr. Vasanth) is very professional and friendly, He covered all the destinations and took us everywhere according to our requirements. The accommodations simply superb and will be life time memorable. I am extremely satisfied with Travel triangle Tours. People say food here is bad and cooked in coconut oil. It's not true, it's good in taste. Kerala God's Own Country Thank You Travel Unbounded :)

    • Trip to Thekkady

      I took the Kerala trip via sethi travels. This was my 2nd trip through Travel Triangle and it was a great experience. Nitin from Sethi travels helped us planned our trip in a nice manner. Our trip itinerary was as follows : 1. Munnar(2N) : Misty Mountains Resort --> Great place to stay with an amazing view 2. Thekkady(1N) : Coffee Routes Resort --> 10 kms from city, in between the forests; very peaceful and blissful stay 3. Alleppey(1N) : Soma Houseboat --> Heritage room (Dlx) of this houseboat is one of the best budget room, One of the highlights of our trip, Food is okay, an be improved 4. Varkala{1N) : Hindustan Beach Retreat --> Near to the beach 5. Day6 : Varkala --> Kanyakumari (+sightseeing) Planning trip is one part and execution is another, which depends a lot on weather and driver. Fortunately, for us weather was really good and Sethi Travels made sure that driver was Really Really good. Our cab driver (Mr. Shah) was one of the main reason why our trip was so awesome. He guided us a lot during the trip, was very interactive and really helpful. I would also recommend taking elephant bath in Munnar/Thekkady, it would be an experience to remember :)

      MM Travel (Anita) was awesome. They make my trip wonderful. Palakkat Nature Resort - Munnar, it is awesome place.. Full Mountain & Tea Graden View from room Balcony. HK Staff were very cooperative & Help full, Food was awesome. There arrange a Cake for my Birthday. Very Nice. I will give 5/5 star to the hotel and all staff. Little disappointment with Thekkady and Thekkady Hotel (Tiger Roare Hotel). I believe it was my bad luck, when I travel to their, There was Strike & nothing to do there. Hotel staff was pathetic. Room was stinking, AC was not working properly. I will give 2/5 star to the hotel and all staff. Lake Palace resort - Alleppay, IT WAS BEST RESORT TO VISIT IN KERALA. Resort are too big in it self you really need 2 days to explore only the resort. The take care of every single things what we need. In Evening they have awesome Houseboat safari for 1 hr, (They actually take you to the River where all houseboat park) Food is awesome, worth for money. Staff are supportive. I will give 5/5 star to the hotel and all staff.
