  • It is a small local temple which villagers seemed to visit for marriage and birthday offerings mainly. I did not like the dirt spread all around the campus of the temple.

  • This auditorium situated next to Azhakodi Devi Temple in Thiruthiyadu, Calicut. 2.5 km from KSRTC Busstand. A reasonable sized auditorium with enough seating capacity. It can accomodate 400-500 people at a time. Parking space is enormous, literally a wide ground. Surroundings are neat and clean. Bathroom facilities could have been better. That's the only reason i gave it a 4 star, not 5.
  • Good one ..with enough trees around them..keeps naturally cool compared to other hot oven type type auditoriums. Have rest rooms ,feeding room and are weel chair friendly. Parking facilities available ,though little bit congested. Good services. Staffs are really good.
