The presiding deity of the temple is Shree Mahadevi who is also called “Parashakthi”. All the other gods are subservient to Mahadevi. She is the embodiment of love. At the same time she is the destroyer of all the evil forces. To her devotees she bestows boons according to their prayers. Devi at Mamanikkunnu is worshipped in her aspect as Bhadrakali; that is as destroyer of evil forces to the devotee who crave for her motherly protection. She gives that protection. She protects them from all calamities and influences. Therefore the offerings and pooja at Mamanikkunnu lay accent on removal of obstacles in the way of honest, sincere devotees, who approach Devi without malice or revengeful attitude towards their rivals in life.
