 Greatness Of Temple:

It is a story of miracle.  There is a horse statue appearing majestically placing its front legs on a Bhoodha – a gigantic creature.  A white man passed through this place and mocked at the horse saying if it would eat grass and make noise.  The head of the place Veeranan Ambalam was hearing the joke of the white man silently.  The white man continued his derisive comment that the horse statue could be demolished when it cannot consume grass or make noise.  Veeranan Ambalam praying to Valladikarar, brought a bundle of grass and placed it before the stone statue.  Though the grass was as it is to the eyes of others, it looked to the eyes of the arrogant white man as if the animal was eating the grass.  The horse called Semankuthirai (Kuthirai in Tamil means horse) also made noise audible to the whiteman and his horse.  His horse began to gallop fast in fear of the sound.  The rider could not control it.  The horse and the white man finally fell in the canal and did not get up then.  The canal was earlier built by white men.  It is called Vellai (white) Kanmai – canal.

  Temple History:

This is a region in Madurai circle with 60 villages in it together collectively called Vellalore.  Valladikarar was in this place.  The place had to face many robberies in the past.  People believed that some invisible man with a flying horse was robbing them.  They fell at the feet of their deity Ezhai Katha Amman – Goddess protecting the poor – and prayed for the end of this invisible robber.  The Goddess intercepted this Mayavi-invisible man – and advised him to end his atrocities and should not cause miseries to the people.  The Goddess also told him that people of the place would accept him also as a deity and build a temple for him.  The Mayavi respected the Goddess and got buried in the place.  Peace returned to the villages. 


One day, a farm woman passed through this place with her food pot on head.  She got stuck at a place.  The food pot fell down and broke to pieces.  She did not care about it but simply passed on.  The incident happened again and again.  Her husband accompanied her then with a crow bar, dug the place to take out the stone that struck his wife each time she passed the place.  He could not succeed but saw bleeding at the place where his instrument hit the earth.  He became bedridden due to fear.  People approached a Kodangi – someone like an astrologer- to find the reason.  He said that Mayavi was under the earth and people should build a temple for him as promised.  People built the temple immediately and also made a horse of clay and placed it in the temple.  Valladikarar is but that Mayavi, now a custodian of the people these villages.
