Sri Rudra is believed to be on the head of the Goddess. Her crown is fire of flames. She appears as Rudra Kali. The face of Rudra is on the head of the Goddess.
Devotees bring huge quantity of wood to make fire in the pit which is forty feet long. The chief priest of the temple walks first on the burning pit followed by lakhs of devotees from 7.00 a.m. to 12.00 a.m. It is a bone chilling event. Men, women, young boys and girls, even the handicapped would walk on the fire pit care free as if walking on a mattress. The pit itself carries the name of the Goddess – Kondathu Kaliamman.
Seeking permission: Sri Kaliamman has the reply in two hands to the queries of devotees. If the reply comes from the right, devotees carry on the work they plan to do and stop if it is from the left. But for remedy from diseases, the reply is prayed for from the left.
Muniappaswami: He appears in a colossal form. Those seeking child boon from the Goddess through a flower, perform abishek to Muniappaswami with 12 pots of water on a Tuesday. Those praying to this deity are freed from magic spells. The talisman and the threads placed at His feet have high power to cure prolonged diseases.
Sri Kaliamman graces facing north. A siddha, known as Surara, had high powers with the grace of the Goddess. With his Mantra powers, he had the darshan of the Mother. There is a temple in Pattari near this temple. The monument of the Siddha is in this place.
