  Temple History:

Vanabadrakali Amman worship and the temple came into being in this place millenniums back, it is believed.  It is also believed that Mother Shakti came to this jungle place-Vana for penance on Lord Shiva to kill demon Mahishasura.  As She performed penance in Vana the forest, She is praised as Vanabadrakali.  It is also believed that the temple is associated with the story of Aravalli-Suravalli the deities of witchcrafts.  Bheema, one of the Pandava brothers came here to end their evil doings, captivated by them and rescued by Lord Krishna.  It is said that one Allimuthu was deputed by Lord Krishna to banish the evil sisters.  Allimuthu went on his mission after praying to Goddess Vanabadrakali. Aravalli and Suravalli were shocked and trembled to see the roaring actions of Allimuthu, they surrendered and offered their sister to Allimuthu in marriage and killed him by food poisoning.  Abhimanyu, son of Arjuna went to the upper world and brought back Allimuthu alive back to earth.  He was now doubly strong, prayed to Vanabadrakali and floored the kingdom and evil rule of Aravalli, Suravalli, thus goes the story.
