The must-visit temple in Trivandrum, just a few minutes ride from the central East Fort Area. This is a well-maintained temple devoted to Devi, who grants each of the wishes of her devotees.
The annual Pongala festival attracts millions, yes, millions of ladies from across the country each year, around February/March.

The Goddess Kannaki (Parvathi) is the main deity in this temple. The mytholgy behind the temple, relates to the story of Kannagi who was married to Kovalan, son of a wealthy merchant. After marriage, Kovalan met a dancer and spent all his riches on her forgetting his wife. But when he was penniless, he went back to Kannagi. The only precious thing left to be sold was Kannagi's pair of anklets. They wnt with it to the king of Madurai to sell it. But an anklet was stolen from the Queen which looked similar to Kannagi's. When he tried to sell it, he was mistaken for the thief and beheaded by the king's sldiers.
