The Shri Umamaheswara Temple is located in Allepey and is dedicated to God Shiva and Goddess Parvathi. The temple is situated at approximately 100 metres from the north side of the Thazhakara, Overbridge in Mavelikkara in the Allepey district. The consecration of the divine idol has been derived with the great effort, ambition and blessings of the predecessors of the members of the Veera family. Due to the enormous size of the Veerashiva family members and the immaculate blessings, of the almighty, on April 25, 1966, on angelic prediction, the divine deity deified in flawless traditional way and subsequently worshipped for the well beings of all devotees as well as other religious believers. This is a rare temple in Kerala because of the different nature of the sanctum sanctorum as Goddess Parvathi Devi is seen meditating with God Shiva, jointly, in one single idol, facing the same direction. Besides Parvathi, Yogeswaran, Nagaraja and Nagyakshi, other presiding deities are also found bestowing their blessings. The villagers believe that the aspirations of the devotees are fulfilling by this divine sanctum sanctorum.
