Lokanarkavu Bhagavathi Temple is a temple frequently alluded to in the
Northern Ballads or the Vadakkanpattu
The main deity is Goddess Durga, with two adjacent shrines dedicated to Vishnu and Siva.
The three rock cut caves in the temple premises are artfully engraved with beautiful carvings and fascinating murals.
The candid murals and carvings here are a delight to art lovers. The main temple, according to legend, is more than 1500 years old.
The annual festival called 'Lokanarkavu Festival' is celebrated in March / April. Situated on the right bank of Kuttiyadi river, Vadakara has a historical fort which is now in ruins.
This temple, associated with the heroes and heroines of the Vadakkanpattu combines an arresting simplicity and a legendary aura.
