About Temple

Lokanarkavu (or LOKAMALAYARKAVU as was known) is a temple village, a part of Memunda area in Villiappally village, Vadakara Taluk Kozhikode District. The temple complex situated about 5 KM east of Vadakara town Proper road facilities are available to the temple complex.

Lokanarkavu temples are very unique as three principal deities are housed in separate temples in a compound. All the three temples are of principal deities, with separate sanctum sanctorum, outer sanctorum, rituals, festivals etc. The deities are of Vishnu, Parasakthi, and Siva in sequential order of their age. Vishnu temple in its present form may be 2000 years old, while the Bhagawathi temple is approximately 1300 to 1500 years old. Siva temple is relatively newer,. approx. 400 years old.
The history of Siva temple is so brief that the Puduppanam Vazhunnavar (Puduppanam village Chief) had Initiated the establishment of Siva temple around 300 - 400 years ago, with the concurrence of the Nagariks and Kadathanad Raja, in between the space available between Vishnu & Bhagavathy temple. The Shivalinga enshrined at the temple was retrieved from a ruined Siva temple elsewhere.
The Bhagawathi or Lokambika as is universally known is one of the four Ambikas, the other three, being. the famous Kollur Mookambika, the famous Hemambika (from where late Mrs Indira Gandhi choose her party's symbol, the palm) near Palakkad, and Hemambika, again, at Kanyakumari, It is also heard Kodungallur Bhagavathi and Chottanikkara Bhagawati are Lokambikas. At Lokanarkavu, Bhagavathi is worshipped in three different forms, in the morning as Saraswathi,the Vidya Devatha, at noon as Lakshmi Devi, devatha of wealth, and in the evening as Bhadrakali,siva's daughter, the destructor.
