Goddess Durga is the presiding deity at the Valliyoorkavu Bhagavathy Temple.

The goddess is worshipped in three forms here Vana Durga, Bhadrakali and Jala Durga. The temple dates back to the 14th century and is 24 km from Kalpetta near Mananthavady. It is famous for the annual 14-day festival which falls in the Malayalam month of Meenam. On the first day, the sword of Valliyooramma is brought by the chief priest from the Palliyara Bhagavathy temple at Pandikkadavu near Mananthavady. The event marks the beginning of the festival.

The tribal chieftains perform the kodiyettu (ceremonial flag hoisting) on the seventh day of the festival. There are tribal dance and folk art performances, and the traditional ritual art form known as kalamezhuthu is performed on all 14 days. Oppana varavu, abhishekam, rudhirakkolam, kalamezhuthum pattum and eedum koorum are folk rituals conducted during the festival.
