 General Information:

People throng the temple as it is situated in a serene and green environment offering mental peace and happiness.


After performing pujas in the Nagarajar shrine, devotees take a piece of white cloth and a lime to the shrine of the Goddess Santhanalakshmi.  Going around the shrine, they tie a cradle with white cloth in the tree for child boon.  It is also believed that those addicted to liquor and tobacco are cured of these habits if they worship in this temple.  The environment by itself is healthy offering mental peace.

Thanks giving:
  Those getting the child boon realized walk on the fire pit with the child. Tonsuring is also undertaken. Those afflicted by Naga dosha – snake aspects, pour milk on the anthill placing a fruit. If the commitment is carried out continuously on new moon days, the aspect disappears. 
 Greatness Of Temple:

The temple is praised for the high powers it holds drawing many from other states.  The belief that Sri Rama returned to Ayodhya through this Manihada Manjakombai adds to its reputation and the symbols of Sri Rama’s feet is worshipped with a deep sense of devotion.  A snake is still alive in the sanctum sanctorum of Sri Nagaraja.  The other marvel is that the snake had created an underground pathway between Nagaraja temple to Heddai Amman Temple to facilitate its moving between the two shrines.  The environment is again an added attraction.

  Temple History:

While gathering sand for the construction of Amman temple in the hilly Manihada region, a thunder-like sound was heard.  There were two caves and an idol of Sri Nagaraja.  While working further, a rock was hindrance.  When removed there was a live snake.  Temples were erected for Nagaraja and the Goddess.  The snake is still alive.  This is a reputed temple in this region of the Queen of Hills.
