 Greatness Of Temple:

It is noteworthy that Mother Raja Rajeswari appears in this temple as a little girl.  This is a rare of form of Mother Raja Rajeswari.  The rays of Sun fall on the feet of Mother for six days at about 6.00 a.m. in Masi-February-March.  Thus began the Surya worship also in the temple during these days.  As there is a shrine for Lord Chadikeswara in Shiva temples, this is the only temple where Mother Chendikeswari too has one.

  Temple History:

Years ago, His Holiness Sri Chandra Sekharendra Saraswathi – praised as Maha Periaval by the devotees was on a pilgrimage to Parangimalai for Lord Nandikeswara darshan.  He also visited Trisulam to worship Lord Trisula Nathar and Mother Tripura Sundari and proceeded through Pazhavanthangal, the place where the temple now exists.  He relaxed there under a tree.  Disciples relaxed in a nearby place.


Periaval was thirsty and called a disciple to get him water.  But his words did not reach the disciple’s ears.  Soon, a little girl appeared before him and offered water.  When Periaval turned to return the water bowl to the girl, She was not there.  When Periaval asked the disciples if they saw a little girl in the place, they replied in the negative.


Periaval sat in meditation for a while and found that the Little Girl was but Mother Sri Rajarajeswari.  He called the elders and the people of the place and told them that Ambica was some where under the ground in the place and asked them to find it out.  He continued his pilgrimage.


The people of the place dug the place and found the idols of Mother as a little girl and Chandikeswari and informed Sri Jagadguru.  Sri Periaval advised the people to install the idols and begin Sri Srividya Raja Rajeswari worship.

Special Features:
  Miracle Based: The rays of Sun fall on the Lotus Feet of Mother Raja Rajeswari for six days in the month Tamil Masi (February-March) at about 6.00 a.m. As there is a shrine for Chandikeswara in Shiva Temples, there is one here for Chandikeswari.
