Madayi is a small place in Kannur district, Kerala, South India. It is located near Payangadi.

Madayi is also the site of the famous Madayi Kavu (Thiruvar Kadu Bhagavathi Temple) where devotees worship Mother Kali, Shakthi. The Goddess is known for Her blessings on devotees, and the temple is also famous for the Koyikalasham (Offering of chicken). The temple was one of the few to survive desecration by the armies of Tippu Sultan, which devotees attribute to the grace of the Goddess. The Kolathiri Rajahs were the protectors of the temple until it was transferred to the Devaswom Board. Nearby is the Vadukunnu Temple dedicated to Shiva. The temple was razed by followers of Tippu Sultan in the 18th century, but fortunately the temple has been rebuilt and is a vibrant centre of religion in the region.

Madayi is also well-known for the Malik Ibn Dinar mosque. This beautiful ancient mosque is believed to have been originally built by Malik Ibn Dinar, a Muslim preacher. A block of white marble in the mosque is believed to have been brought from Mecca by its founder, who came to India to spread the word of the Prophet. Nearby lies a dilapidated fort believed to have been built by Tipu Sultan, the ruler of Mysore.

Madayi today hosts a vibrant community of Hindus and Muslims alike.
