Kerala Photos : Temples : Panachikkad Saraswathi Temple
The Saraswathi Temple known as 'Dakshina Mookambika temple' is situated at Panachikkad about 10 km from Kottayam on the way to Changanasseri.

Panachikkad Temple is dedicated to Goddess Saraswathi and is very popular among devotees. People throng the temple in large numbers during the Vidyarambham days (Saraswati Pooja) during the Malayalam month of Thulam (Sep-Oct), to initiate the education of their children.

Panachikkad Temple has Lord Vishnu as the main deity and there is separate sanctum sanctorum for Goddess Saraswathi. The unique feature of Panachikkad temple is the presence of Yakshi temple, which is covered in creepers and the main idol is not visible now. Water always flows here even in peak summer time.
