 Greatness Of Temple:
  As a tradition, only during festivals, a wooden post with three branches (Kambam in Tamil) is planted in Mari Amman temples before Ambica.  It is a permanent feature in this temple.  It is said that Ambica has a direct view on this Kambam considered as Her Lord.  Hence, she is praised as Nitya Sumangali Amman.  Women believe that worshipping Amman would bless them a life with their husbands and absolute longevity to their Mangalsutras in their life time. 
People seeking child boon follow a strange puja in the temple.  During the Aipasi festival, they remove the old Kambam and replace it with a new one.  Take the old one to a well nearby, do pujas and offer curd rice nivedhana.  Women seeking child boon worship the Kambam and consume the curd rice nivedhana so that they will get their wish-child boon.
This temple is situated amidst four hills, Kollimalai, Alavai malai, Nainamalai and Bodhamalai.  During the Aipasi festival Ambal is decorated with flowers called Poochattu.  Worshipping during this time is considered a lucky opportunity for the devotees.  The swayambu Amman is in the sanctum sanctorum before Ambica seated on a square stage-peeta.  Swayambu Ambica is in the form of a Linga.  The Yali Vahan – resembling a lion – is before Ambica.  There is also a swing mandap.  The foot prints of Ambica is on the swing.  Women seeking child boon move the swing to and fro with their prayers.  There are shrines for Lords Vinayaka and Muruga only in the prakara.  There are other deities in the prakara.
  Temple History:
  The place was fertile with green fields.  A farmer, while tilling the land found a place bleeding.  He brought all the people and while digging the place, they found a swayambu deity.  Mother spoke through one of Her devotees to build a temple for Her in the place.  People did it.  Later, they built a temple installing an idol of  Mother Mari Amman.
