Sri Meenkulathi Bhagavathi Amman Temple is in Pallasena Village, Palakkad District of Kerala. We visited this during Thai Vellaikkizhamai [1st feb 2008], but posting in the blog before Aadi Vellikkizhamai [1st aug 2008]. The nearest town is Kollengodu. This place can be reached from Coimbatore in three ways... via Pollachi or via Palakkad or direct to Kollengodu after crossing Ettimadai in NH-47 towards Palakkad.
Meenkulathikkavu is the oldest temple of Pallasena with a mysterious origin. Tradition has it that centuries ago three families belonging to the Veerasaiva Vellalar Mannadiar clan worshipped Goddess Meenakshi as their deity. Acute drought conditions in Chidambaram (Tamil Nadu) drove them to seek greener pastures. Soon after their worship of their destiny in Madurai one of them took a stone from there along with their other possessions.
