  Temple History:
  Planet Venus – Shukra worshipped Lord Shiva to regain his eye sight which he lost to Lord Maha Vishnu during His Vamana Avtar.  Mother Parvathi too was in penance on Lord at that time.  Lord Shiva was just thinking to whom His grace should go first.  Mother Parvathi was gracious to ask the Lord to offer His grace to Shukra first.  She told Shukra that the Friday (Shukravar) belonging to him should be transferred in Her favour and that he should not be adverse to Her devotees which Shukra readily agreed.  Thus, Mother Anandavalli became to be praised as Shukravara Amman.  
Special Features:
  Miracle Based: Only women carry the palanquin of Mother Shukravara Amman in this temple.
