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

      Overall the experience of our trip to Kerala was neither very good nor bad, but the dealing with the Tour operator was very bad. Once the booking is done, they don't bother about you :( If you have no other alternative you will end up in very bad memories of your trip. Rooms: - Munnar - room provided was not clean and even food was also bad. - Thekkady - Room provided in Thekkady was good. Jeep safari in Thekkady was waste of money (3K). Did not seen even a single animal and Jeep driver points to a dot on far away hill and tells you are lucky to find a dot(which he said was an Elephant). Our daughter was very much dis-appointed as we promised her to show the animals. The tour organizers show the pictures which are very impressive, but the true fact was quite opposite. - Alleppey - Our driver asked us to contact the Tour operator(Nitin from, Sethi Travels Think Holiday Group) to get the contact details of house boat. Tour Organizer provided the same, and when we tried to contact the person, they mentioned that NO house boat was reserved on our name. Our total trip from Thekkady to Alleppey we were trying to reach either Tour Organizer or house boat owner, but of no use (hardly phone signals were there on the way), both of them are not at all in sync. Finally our driver arranged for a house boat for which we had to pay an additional cost of 1500/-. Also Tour Organizer promised for a cake and other things as part of booking but he failed to provide the same. He finally promised to pay the difference amount but didn't provide it till date. But overall we had mixed feelings, but the driver we got for the entire tour was good.

      Our driver was very proactive and took us to the best places and guided us for almost everything during the tour. He was very well versed with all the locations and took us to the best spots. Hotel locations were beautiful and rooms were comfortable at all the places be it Munnar, Thekkady or Cherai. Boathouse experience was commendable. Staff were courteous and service was excellent with quality local snacks like banana pakoda etc. Boathouse was the best memory of our tour. Raisoone Travels planned a very comfortable and amazing trip. The people we coordinated with were very helpful and prompt. They suggested us to stay at Cherai beach instead of Cochin and it works perfect for us, as we experienced beautiful and clean beach at Cherai.

      Hotel stay in Thekkady was good but had issues with check-in timings. Had to pay additional 1000 rupees for early check-in. With respect to cab, cab driver was excellent and could talk in English, Tamil and local language. But they had a specific itinerary to cover which was not communicated to me. For spots I asked they were asking to pay extra Overall trip was ok

      Overall it was very good experience. Except hotel services and cleanliness of Periyar nest hotel in Thekkady. Food in hotel was disappointing at every place, so we had to go outside for each meal. Arrangements of houseboat was amazing with candle light dinner. Hotel services in Munar & Kovalam was also great. I would recommend DZ to get best experience of kerela tour.

      Experience with Cab & driver was excellent as he acted as a guide also. Hotel at Thekkady was superb. Facilities at Houseboats could have been improved in terms of cleanliness and hygiene. Overall the trip was memorable. Like to get the services of Travel Triangle in future too. Stay at Grand Thekkady Hotel with upgraded facilities.

    • Trip to Thekkady

      Though everything went well but things could have been better. Below is my detailed Feedback: 1. Hotel (Summer Castle) in Munnar was 18 Km away from the tourist attractions. We can ignore that once but not the hospitality received at Hotel. No Hot Water in the room, Intercom Not working, WiFi not working, Pathetic Breakfast Menu and Dinner menu not as per what they charge. Overall, Very Poor Experince at Munnar Hotel. 2. Hotel Spice Inn in Thekkady is excellent but it is 12 Kms away from town and its literally on Highway. So You can't really go to market or town for evening walk etc. 3. Cab Driver: He left us under Scorching sun at Alleppy to save Parking charges while we were waiting for House Boat Owner to pick us up . It literally took them 1 hour to pick us . Also, House Boat was not anchored at Starting Point but was there somewhere mid of the Lake. So they arranged a power boat to take us to House boat. This process wasted 1.5 Hours and we checked in House Boat at 1.30 pm instead of 12 pm. Cab Driver always giving some or the other excuses for locations which we wanted to visit. Overall, ok-ok kind of experience (not too good, not too bad) .

      Kerala Trip - An overall wonderful, amazing, incredible and awesome trip experience. Tour Club International (Mr. Jipson) helped to customize our 7days trip very well. Mr. Saji (Driver) was well experienced and good photographer too. About hotel rating i would give - Rivertree Munnar - 4 star, Summit Hampton, Thekkady - 5 star, Jasmine Palace, Kovalam - 3.5 star, RGV Houseboat, Alappuzha - 3 star. Houseboat could have been better, not as shown in image. Thank you Tour Club for all complimentary things added to our trip. It was fantastic trip with lots of memories. Scenic View of Munnar with Tea plantation everywhere, Idduki Dam view from Kalvari Mount View point, Alappuzha Backwater view

      We have mixed experience as far as hotels are concerned. Hotel Pine Tree staff behavior was excellent, they even provided extra bed without any additional cost, food and tea were also of very good quality but their beds were too soft and spongy to be comfortable. Hotel Season Thekkady at Thekkady was comfortable but their food (breakfast) was not good. Houseboat at Alleppy was nice, however there was some cleanliness issue. Children enjoyed the stay at Houseboat. Location of Hotel God's Own Villa at Kovalam was good, however earlier informed hotel was better located. Hotel was good at Kovlam but their food was of substandard quality. Hotel Sea View at Kanyakumari was very good. It's location was perfect. The best hotel in the whole trip we got was at Rameshwaram. Star Palace hotel was perfect and their staff behavior was excellent. They also tried and provided us two suits and one double bed room instead of three double bedrooms without asking for any additional charges. Location of Hotel Lotus at Madurai was also great. Breakfast was also of very good quality though they have no restaurant of their own and arrange it in collaboration of a restaurant situated just in front. As far as vehicle is concerned, it was comfortable but it was not in accordance of what was quoted in the quotation prior and after booking. In place of 9 seater AC Luxry Tempo Traveller we were provided with a 12 seater AC Tempo traveller. Vehicle was also not in best of the condition. But the drniver Mr. Vijay Krishna was excellent. He was very polite, honest, soft spoken, reliable and possess excellent driving capability. We shall always remember him.
