Every day, the Alankaras for Amman would be different with special pujas as Muniappan Puja, receiving Mother Amman, Wedding Shakti Karakam, Abhishek with turmeric water and Madurai Veeran pujas. Each year, devotees make clay dolls depicting Madurai Veeran accompanied by Puthia Pattatharsi Amman, Vellayammal and Bommi Ammal and worship him. They remove this clay idol placed at the entrance of the temple next year and replace it with new ones. He is custodian deity of the temple.

  Temple History:

This is a 150 year old temple noted for its peaceful and divine environment free from any pomp and splendour.  It has no priest chanting Mantras. A Pujari performs Aarati at scheduled times.  Mother Pattatharasi Amman is believed to be incarnation of Mother Parvathi.  In days of yore, people installed Amman under the Arasamaram tree along with other sub-deities.  Madhi Chinnan was a rich farmer owning a vast land where he cultivated paddy, plantain and Sugar cane.  A cow and its calf entered his fields and destroyed the crops.  Madhi Chinnan during his visit to the farm got wild and sent an arrow which injured the calf causing unbearable pain.  It was the cow that gave its milk for the Shiva puja.


The cow went to Mother Parvathi and shed tears.  Mother sent a message to Madhi Chinnan that She would be present there and Chinnan was ordered to erect a Green Pandal with Karakam.  He did and was waiting for Amman.  Mother Parvathi appeared there with Her sword terribly indignant and destroyed the family of Madhi Chinnan.  His brother ran away and hid himself in Arasani Kadu.  He surrendered at the feet of Mother Parvathi and begged for life in all humility.  Amman advised them to install Madurai Veeran with all sub-deities under the tree.  She also said that as they did not know Mantras etc. they should be simply devout and that She would protect them from evils when they call Her.  The pujari said that the 7 Nattakkal (7 stones) were deities Mari Amman, Dandumari, Ellai Mari, Muthumari, Shakthi Amman, Thavittu Mari and Karumari.

Special Features:
  Miracle Based: Besides worshipping Pattarasi Amman in the new-built temple, people here also worship the Nattakkal deities under Arasa Maram for the 150 years with all devotion.
