 Greatness Of Temple:

Sulakkal Mari is mentioned in the Tamil Sangam literatures as Vadakku Vayil Selvi as She is facing the North. Vadakku in Tamil means North. All the abishek and pujas are performed to the Swayambumurthy only. Mariamman appears near the Swayambu in the form of idol. This is one of the important Mariamman temples in Coimbatore district. As there was a trident (Shoolam) near the Swaymbu the Goddess is called Sulakkal Mariamman.

Mother Mariamman is gracing the 400 year old sanctum sanctorum in a sitting form with her right leg folded and holding Udukkai and a sword in the right hands and trident and a skull in left hands.

  Temple History:

The cows of the farmers of Velayudhampalayam were gracing in this region. The farmers found that the quantity of milk from the cows was coming down. They wanted to know the cause and watched the cows and found that they were pouring the milk in a particular place and drove them off. But the leg of one cow was caught in a bush and when it took off its leg, the swaymbu came out a little damaged. There was a trident also near the Swayambu. The scar caused by the cow’s leg is still visible on the deity.

Ambika appeared in the dream of the owner of that particular cow and directed him to erect a temple for Her. The temple came into being then.

Special Features:
  Miracle Based: Mother Mariamma is a swayambumurthy. The scar caused by the leg of the cow is still visible.
