Chettikulagara Bharanai Temple, the famous temple dedicated to the awesome Goddess Bhagavathi is about 5 kms from Kayamkulam. The important festival here occurs on the Bharani asterism in February/ March.

The main rituals of the festival are the ‘Kuthiyottam’ and ‘Kettukazcha’. The ‘Kuthiyottam’ features a procession of young boys who have observed rigorous ritual penance.

Traditional drums, music and glittering ornamental parasols accompany this procession of boys who dance in a trance.
