But the Goddess Parakkady, after resting in Chakyar kodoth, in kavassery, proceeded to a place where PARAYA community people have lived. Its been believed that the goddess Parakkady has went in to a home in that place, and told the people that, the goddess want to settle down there and the people should conduct poojas and festivals there. But the poor people replied to the goddess that, they were very poor people and they are not financially sound to conduct poojas and festivals. Its said that, by hearing that, The goddess gave a “Kuzhal” ( a musical instrument like trumpet) and few other musical instruments and asked them to think of the goddess and go, there by they will be able to get all the things what they required to conduct poojas and festivals. Then the goddess left the place after seeing the in-hygiene surroundings and settled down in the place where the existing temple situates.

Myth 2
Parakkat TempleIts been believed that, one day, when the Goddess was walking in the dense forest, one Manthravadi was coming along the way who was going for fishing. With the powerful RAKSHA which the manthravadi was wearing, he was able to concur the goddess and asked her to carry the fish carrier ( kooda) and walk with him. That manthravadi was believed to be Chathu ammaman of Kulangara house. One day, when the manthravadi was on his way to fishing, and lost his powerful raksha, Devi shown him the real power of her and killed Chathu ammaman, and cut in to 18.5 pieces and thrown in to different places. Those places has been asked to raise the flag post before 7 days of mamangam which is been held in that place. The goddess also ordered that, in response to the activity of chathu ammaman, the ladies of Kulangara family should carry the goddess’s vigraham, and should come to all the 18.5 flag posts. That’s called “OORVALAM”. That activity has become the right of Kulangara family.
