goddess Bhagavathy is the presiding deity of the small temple of Elamkavu
Attuvela, situated 3 kms from Vaikom on the banks of river Vadayar.
The temple boasts of two festivals, namely, the flag hoisting festival, lasting for eight days (February 19- 26), and the two-day Attuvela Festival (April 12-13). During the Attuvela, beautifully illuminated canoes, carrying a huge replica of the temple, glide down the waters.
Legend has it that this is a ceremony to welcome the goddess of Kodungalloor coming to visit her sister, the goddess of Elamkavu.
