Vazhappully Shree Rajarajeshwari Temple is one of the first and foremost family temples in Kerala dating back more than 500 years.
This temple is located west of Edamuttom in the Thrissur district of Kerala, India.
Due to the presence of the supreme soul of the goddess Bhadrakali, in ancient times the devotees sacrificed hen and goat to this temple as offerings. Later in the month of Malayalam year 1122 Edavam (1947, May) a beautiful Panchaloha idol of Sri Rajarajeswari was reestablished as the main deity by Sri. Narasimha Swamikal, the first disciple of Sri Narayana Guru.
Miracle in the Temple:
It was predicted by Sri. Narasimha Swamikal that this transformation from the Bhadrakali Goddess to the Rajarajeswari Goddess (from a fierce form to humility) can show unusual changes in nature at the time of reinstatement. Surprisingly, during the relocation of the idol in May 1947, the trunk of a huge tree Mimusops Elengi on the south side of the temple was split in two and fell showing the powers of the goddess Rajarajeswari. It was one of the extraordinary “miracles” that our ancestors and elders witnessed. Although the idol is of the goddess Sri Rajarajeshwari, the basic mantra is of the goddess Bhadrakali.
Devotees are blessed with prosperity, wealth, and bestowal blessings. The goddess Rajarajeswari is considered the protector of this region. All devotees, regardless of their nationality, caste, creed and religion are welcome in this temple to fulfill their wish.
Powers of Mahalakshmi, Saraswati, Parvathi and Bhadrakali:
Goddess Rajarajeswari is having the amalgamate powers of Goddess Mahalakshmi, Goddess Saraswati, Goddess Parvathi and Goddess Bhadrakali.

Centuries ago, a family called “Eranezhath” from the south center of Travancore came to Thalikulam in Chavakkad Taluk, Trichur district. A group of this family moved south to Kazhimbram and called the family “Eranezhath Vazhappully”. Over time, this family was renamed “Vazhappully”. Due to this historical reference, conjugal relations between the Vazhappully and Eranezhath families (including the associated families of Eranezhath such as Andezath, Mambarambath and Vengali) are not allowed until now.
The members of the Vazhappully family in Kazhimbram were grouped according to their geographical location and the descendants were mentioned as Chalungal Thavazhi, Kattikkaar Thavazhi, Azhiparamban Thavazhi and
The governing authorities of Vazhappully Sri Rajarajeshwari temple are chosen each year among the 4 descendants mentioned above according to the status of the temple. Every year, after the Temple Festival (Makarapathu) and before the month of Malayalam, Kumbham 30, a meeting of the General Body is convened and new authorities of the Temple Government are elected.
