Parassini Madappura Sree Muthappan Temple located on the banks of the river Valapattanam is one of the famous shrine in Kerala. The shrine is dedicated to Sree Muthappan.Parassini Madappura Sree Muthappan Temple is not a Kshethram but it is a madappura. Unlike other temples, the devotees can 'interact' with the God as they pour out their grievances in a free-wheeling 'chat' with the tastefully decorated "Muthappan Theyyam", an artist who assumes 'divinity' by representing the God. The theyyam responds with convincing solutions, which are believed by the devotees as sacred and that of the God. Muthappan theyyam then parts with the liquor and elder male devotees take it as ‘necter’ while the other offerings are set apart for dogs, considered the Lord’s pet animal, which eagerly wait outside the temple to pick up the dishes.
