The Chottanikkara - or the Jyotiannakkara - Temple stands out from the rest of them in Cochin for its sheer architectural beauty. Nowhere will you see the Vishwakarma Sthapathis style of wooden sculpting as beautiful as this one. This alone makes it a must-visit attraction in Cochin. The temple is dedicated to goddess Bhagwati, one of the most important deities in Kerala. Worshipped as Saraswati in the morning, Lakshmi at noon, and Durga in the evening, Bhagwati is believed to cure devotees of diseases and mental illnesses.

While you are here, don’t miss Guruthi Pooja, which happens in the Keezhkkaavu temple at Chottanikkara. The nightly pooja (prayer) is carried out to invoke the goddess.
