  Temple History:

Renukadevi, wife of Jamadagni Rishi, with the power of her chastity made pots with the sand in the river bank and was fetching water for puja in the Ashram. Once, she saw the reflection of a handsome Gandharva travelling in the sky on his horse and wondered at his beauty. The very thought and appreciation of the handsomeness of the Gandharva had its impact on her power that the pot was broken and she had to return to the Ashram without water. Muni Jamadagni understood the reason. He suspected her fidelity and asked his son Parasurama to chop off his mother’s head. Son Parasurama obeyed, but could not bear the grief.

Jamadagni told Parasurama that he was pleased with his obedience while his brothers refused his order and offered a boon. Parasurama wanted his mother back which the Rishi obliged but left his wife. However, as she was bringing him water for his ujas, he said that she, in the name of Mariamman would continue the service to people offering pure water. Mari in Tamil means rain. As Renukadevi was making pots, the potter-velala community people worship Her as their community deity in Thozhudur.
