 Greatness Of Temple:
  Years ago, children installed a small stone and were worshipping. In course of time crowds grew large. A small temple was built then installing the deity.
The reputation of the temple lies in the two trees, neem and bodhi at the entrance. The famous Amman related festival – Poochattu – walking on a fire pit, is celebrated each year. Devotees throng the temple from nearby places as Pallipalayam, Sankagiri, Komarapalayam, Tiruchengodu and surrounding places. This is part of the car festival celebrated in the month of Karthikai – November-December.
  Temple History:

As children use to play-worship with God dolls in the houses, what the children did on the banks of Cauvery with small stone worshipping as Ambal or Goddess, is now a temple. Child Bhakti play had resulted in the emergence of this temple. As it was originally worshipped by children, the Goddess is known as Chinna Mariamman. (Chinna-small). The temple stands majestically for the past 150 years.
