Pulickal Sankarodath Sree Nagayakshikkavu is a very ancient but less known centre of pilgrimage for the devotees of serpent gods. It is located at Kavilpadu Village near Olavakkode Junction in Palakkad District. This powerful Nagayakshi Temple is nestled in a forest glade, like most snake temples in Kerala, hence the name "Kavu'.
NagaYakshi Amma in this Pulickal temple is in "swaymbhu avatar" and has been blessing devotees who have been flocking this place since long. This temple is famous for its representation of Nagas in the Brahmana, Krishna, Kaliya and Agama format. In the main sanctum Sree Naga Yakhi Amma, Sree Naga Raja and Sree SarpaYakshi Amma are worshipped with equal importance. It is believed that the great saint Kashypa,considered as the forefather of serpents, had been at this place for penance and he had attained 'samadhi' by leaving his life energy and spiritual energy onto the serpent idol in the 'machakam' or 'nilavara' of this ancestral home. So Saint Kashyapa is also worshipped as the 'Naga Muthachan' here. Also Naga Chamundi, Naga Kanyaka and Bhadrakali are worshipped with seperate Poojas for each deity.
