Vazhappully Shree Rajarajeshwari Temple
Vazhappully Shree Rajarajeshwari Temple is among the first and foremost family temples in Kerala which ages back to more than 500 years. This temple is situated towards the west of Edamuttom in Thrissur District, Kerala State, India. Due to the presence of the supreme soul of Goddess Bhadrakali, in olden days devotees sacrificed chicken and goat to this temple as offerings. Later in Malayalam Year 1122 Edavam month (1947, May) a beautiful Panchaloha idol of Sri Rajarajeswari was reinstalled as the main deity by Sri. Narasimha Swamikal, the first disciple of Sri Narayana Guru. It was predicted by Sri. Narasimha Swamikal that this transformation from Goddess Bhadrakali to Goddess Rajarajeswari (from fierce form to meekness) may show some unusual changes in nature at the reinstallation time. Surprisingly during reinstallation of the idol in May 1947 the trunk of a huge Mimusops Elengi Tree at the south side of temple split into two and fell down showing the powers of Goddess Rajarajeswari. This was one of the remarkable Miracle witnessed by our forefathers and elders. Eventhough the idol is of Goddess Sri Rajarajeshwari the base mantra is of Goddess Bhadrakali.
