 General Information:

During the Muslim invasions, Hindu temples were destroyed. With a determination to save the idol, the people of the place hid the idol in a canal well While desilting the well after many years, the idol was found by the people and they installed it in the temple. The Goddess is now protecting the people who saved her idol earlier. As the temple exists in the midst of green fields (Vayal), the Goddess is named Pillaivayal Kaliamman, it is said.


The importance of the temple is that Goddess blesses people with child boon. Devotees firmly believe if they pray here, they will have the child next year.

Thanks giving:
  Women awaiting marriage pray here each Friday lighting lamps to the deity so that their wedding materializes earlier. Also the lamp lighting is followed for protection of children born and to be born. 
 Greatness Of Temple:

God and Goddess always put devotees to some test to assess their faith and it is for the devotee to pass the examination. It is said that Pillaivayal Kaliamman too tested the faith of the people during the Muslim invasions in the past. Now the temple requires proper maintenance and many believe that this is also a test for them. The Andhra Parasakthi appears to be waiting for some one to take care of the temple.

Five hundred years ago, people of Paiyur village prayed to Goddess Kaliamman to save them from the troubles they were in then. The Goddess responded to their prayers born of their thoughts.

She is now their deity taking care of their well being.
