Aryankuzhi Devi Temple is a famous devi temple located at Aryankuzhi, Trivandrum district, Kerala, India.
The legend says that, when a few children were playing, one of them fell down hitting on a sedimentary rock. Soon after that, the rock started bleeding. Astrological observations confirmed the presence of divinity in the stone and the people around the area started worshiping the rock which eventually turned out to a famous temple in southern Kerala.
