At the heart of the Perumbavoor town, not far away from Kalady, is the Kuzhipillykavu Jaladurga Temple. Legends point to an incident of digging a pond while the tool struck on a 'rudrakshashila' (sacred stone) which started bleeding profusely. Locals believed that the stone has divine power of Goddess Devi as Shakti.

A temple was constructed at this site. As the idol had come from water (jalam in Malayalam), the goddess at this temple is known as Jaladurga. Hence the name Kuzhippilli which literally means "the temple in a pit dug. "

The temple faces west and the prime deity is 'rudrakshashila', a manifestation of Goddesses Durga, Saraswathi and Bhadrakali. The idol is primarily worshiped as Bhadrakali, the goddess who killed the demon-king, Dharika. The temple also houses idols of Balabhadra, Lord Ganesh and Sree Ayyappan. Other idols worshiped here are Santhi Durga, Nagaraja amd Brahmarakshas.
