Panachikkadu Saraswathi Temple

The temple anchored in Panachikkadu is known as Dakshina Mookambika in South India. Panachikkadu is located 11-km away from Kottayam town. Though the temple is known as Saraswathy temple, the main deity is Mahavishnu (Vishnu). The devotees worship Vishnu first before worshipping Saraswathy (Devi) as a custom. Ganapathy, Shiva, Sasthavu and Yakshi are satisfied with the position as sub-deities.There is no temple structure for Saraswathy. On the southern side of the Vishnu shrine a small pond cut through granite exists. The pond is waterful throughout the year.The idol of Devi, the Saraswathi, is beneath the pond. A creeper in the pond serves as a structure for Devi. The creeper with ample leaves in static growth rate – neither increases nor decreases the size – serves as structure from the time the Devi was worshipped centuries ago. The creeper has never flowered and never fruited – a subject worth of research by botany scientists.
