 General Information:

The present Alandurai Kappukadu was part of Kerala about a century back.  During the rule of Sri Kamaraj, after reorganization of borders, the temple was in a forest area of Coimbatore district.  During the years that followed, due to deforestation, the temple got its place on the Siruvani road in Alandurai.  It is a pleasant place with the flow of Noyyal River.  The temple also enjoys an equal status as to its antiquity with of the famous Lord Patteeswarar temple in Perur.  There is an eighty year old tamarind tree in the temple complex.


The year 1900 caused panic among the people due to some tremors in this region resulting in some epidemics as smallpox and fevers of serious nature.  Residents submitted their prayers at the Lotus Feet of Kudalur Mariaman for recovery.  The main prayer in the temple is for health followed by others as peace, happiness and prosperity in the family and relief from debt burdens.

Thanks giving:
  To cure the pimples or scars in the face caused by small pox, people offer salt and pepper Kanikkai in the temple and they believe this is the effective prayer to make the face clean and bright. After realizing their prayers, they make no money contribution to the temple but beg at each door and offer the things they get to the temple during the Chithirai festival. 
 Greatness Of Temple:

People here say that they hear the sound of anklets of Mother Amman from 11.00 p.m. to 12.00 p.m during the nights.  They believe that Amman is moving during the nights.  When Karakam is brought to the temple during the festival, devotees lie on the way to the temple on whom those bringing flower pots walk and enter the temple.  This is the only temple in Coimbatore district, such a system is followed.

  Temple History:

Mother Kudalur Mariamman appeared here about 250 years ago as a Swayambu.  Residents of this hill place revered Amman as their family deity.  After deforestation and emergence of villages here, people neglected Amman worship.  As a consequence epidemics as small pox began to attack the people. People realized  their mistake and began worshipping Amman again and devotionally.  About 58 years back, the villagers decided to remove the Swayambu and decided to place a fresh idol in place.  But while they tried to remove the Swayambu fire sparks began to explode compelling people to drop their plan.  The left the swayambu in its own place and placed an additional idol.  The term Kudalur Mariamman, it is said, that She dwells in the belly of each being.  It is also said that Amman accepted food from houses.  The villagers strongly believe that Kudalur Mariamman is their choice physician to treat them when they are ill.
