Kizhakkebhagathu Appooppan Kshethram
It is the most prominent among other places of worship associated with Malanada temple. Kizhakkebhagathu Appooppan is the nephew of Malanada Appooppan, although annoyed and antagonized, is faithful to his uncle. He provides alms and shelter to all who seek solace from ‘Vallyappooppan’ and offers to ‘Vallyappooppan’ whatever he receives in return. It is believed that the nephew makes Malanada temple rich and prosperous. As bequeathed by ‘Valliappooppan’, ‘Kizhakkebhagathu Appooppan’ looks after Edakkad kara which is one among the seven karas of Malanada. Before Malakuda, ‘Kizhakkebhagathu Appooppan’ celebrates his annual festival on the 28th of Makaram every year, popularly known as ‘Uchcharam’.
