Pulimughathu devi temple is one of the famous temple in kerala. This Holy and Mighty temple has been existing as the centre of worship for more than two hundred years. Now-a-days Sree Pulimukhathu Bhadra Bhagavathi has become the most benevolent deity of thousands of villagers. The historical legend of this temple is closely associated with the story of a Bhrahmin family - Vanithamangalathillam - which ran away from Malabar and migrated to Trancore as a consequence of the Malabar invasion of Tippu Sulthan.
Like many other Bharhmin families who were constrained to ran away from Malabar, this family arrived at Pulimukhathu Madam Cherianad near Changannoor and resided there for a long time. They never forget to keep up the idol of their ancestral deity -Thevaramoorthi - along with them.
They established the idol of their Thevaramoorthy - ‘Sree Bhadrabhagavathy’ - Pulimukhathu Madam at Cherianad, Changanoor and continued the ritual formalities with keen observance. Later the Bhrahmin family shifted to Thazhava in Karunagappally Taluk and made their permanent settlement at Thazhava. They continued to keep up the idol of the favorite deity and kept up the ritual formalities. As a result of an astrological observation, they found out a suitable place for the permanent settlement of the idol at Thazhava and constructed one Srekovil, established the idol and addressed as ‘Pulimukhathu Devi’ itself in memmorial of the place where it was settled at first in Cheriyanadu. Since then this temple has been known as Sree Pulimukhathu Devi Temple at Thazhava.
The temple Tanthri is Kulakkada Vadasserimadam Brahmashri Narayanan Potty. There existed a huge pond of 1.5acres infront of the temple, as part of development the pond area reduced to 40 cents. The temple has a stage and a vast ground. The trust decided to rennovate the pond by building a stone wall around it after the submission of chuttamabalam to devi by june 2017. The 'nalambalam' which is under construction is having magnificent mural paintings and emblished with architectural pillars.the work of prayer hall was also been completed. In relation to the dedication of 'nalambalam' to Devi, the 'sreekovil' and devathalayms for other dieties such as ganapathi,brahmarakshas, madanswamy, yakshiamma,serpents and platform of yakshipana have to be renovated.the construction of flagpole, anakottil is also under concern. In future it will be complete d according to God's will. For this costlier venture many of the devotees and the villagers are doing financial support.
It locates in between karunagapally- oachira highway,3 KM distance from Puthiyakavu to Thazhava AVHS School and 500m away from AVHS School to Temple
