On the banks of the Valapattanam river stands the famous Muthappan Temple, popularly known as the Parassinikkadavu Muthappan Temple. The main deity of this temple is Sree Muthappan, the manifestation of Thiruvappana and Vellattam who are two mythical characters. The Parassinikkadavu Muthappan Temple is well-known for its unique worshipping style. Unlike other Hindu temples, the mode of worship at this temple is in the form of a dance which is called Muthappan Theyyam. Another unique feature of this temple is its offering where toddy and dried fish is given as an offering to the Muthappan. The major festival celebrated here is the Muthappan Thiruvoppana Mahothsavam.
