Parassinikadavu Muthappan Temple

Parassini Madappura Sree Muthappan Temple located on the banks of the river Valapattanam is one of the famous Temples in Kerala. The shrine is dedicated to Sree Muthappan.Parassini Madappura Sree Muthappan Temple is not a Kshethram but it is a madappura. Unlike other temples, the devotees can ‘interact’ with the God as they pour out their grievances in a free-wheeling ‘chat’ with the tastefully decorated “Muthappan Theyyam”, an artist who assumes ‘divinity’ by representing the God. The theyyam responds with convincing solutions, which are believed by the devotees as sacred and that of the God.

Sree Muthappan is always accompanied by a dog. Here dogs are considered sacred and can be seen in large numbers around the temple.Two carved bronze dogs at the entrance of the temple symbolize the bodyguards of the God. When the Prasadam is ready, it is first served to a dog that is always ready inside the temple complex.

Parassini Madappura is administered by the Parassini Madappura Family. The annual ‘Puthari Thiruvappana’ festival begins on Vrischikham 16 (Malayalam era, normally December 1 or 2). The festival is associated with the harvest celebration of the local people.
