By sheer providence I took a wrong turn at Aduthurai and ended up at this temple while trying to visit the Thirumananjeri temple (click here to see my blog on the Thirumananjeri temple).
It was a divine blessing as I came too know that the pre marriage Vedic homams were all conducted here for Shiva and Parvathy before their wedding at Tirumananjeri and we are supposed to visit this temple before visiting the Thirumananjeri temple.
How to Reach:
This temple is very close to the tirumanenjeri temple and easily accessed from Aduthurai (for details see my blog on the Thirumanenjeri temple)
Legends of the temple:
The temple was the place where the vedic homam before the wedding was conducted. Those with delay in wedding should do homams here to expedite things.Compared to the Thirumnanjeri temple there is no crowd here. the peaceful surroundings were enchanting .
with Ambal Parimalasugandha nayaki in the front facing south.The ambal is standing and is about 5 feet tall
