Upadevatha / Sub Deities : xx
Its very rare to see a Pratyangira temple in kerala. This temple does Amavasi pooja and Pratyangira poojas.
The story of Maha Pratyangira : Narasimha after killing Hiranyakashipu was still angry and all the devas couldnt control his anger and rage. To ensure that Hiranyakasipu's brand of evil is forever banished from the universe, Narasimha consumed every drop of Hiranyakasipu's blood and then wore the demon's mangled body as a garland. So the devas went to Lord Siva and he took his gory from of sarabha. Narasimha and Sarabha had a long fight..but some what was still uncontrolable. To bring the whole thing in peace, from sarabha's third eye he made a even more gory form of Maha Pratyangira. Even by the sight of Her, narasimha and all became cool... Her ugra roar made all things calm..
