Uru Punyakavu Sree Durga Bhagavathi Kshethram

Moodadi Urupunyakavu Temple is one of the 108 Durga Temples built by Lord Parasurama for the well-being and prosperity of the state of Kerala. It is situated 850 meters from Moodady town between the Kozhikode –Kannur NH on a hill side near the “OHM” shaped Arabian Sea.

This temple is known as Oru Punyakavu, Urupunyakavu and Gurupunyakavu. To protect the land from the fury of the sea during Monsoon season, Lord Parasurama created this temple with Goddess Jaladurga as a main deity and Lord Ayyappa and Lord Ganesh as other deities. Five sacred ponds filled with holy water are situated in these premises. One such pond is situated inside the temple and holy water from this pond is used for all the poojas and other rituals here. Though the temple is situated on a hill top, it is a miracle that only one foot digging can bring water holes on these premises.
