Greatness Of Temple:

   Chola King Kulothunga had no child for long years. He prayed to Mother Ambica of the temple offering anklets seeking child boon. Even now, Ambica appears with anklets in Her lotus feet. As Sun and Moon grace the devotees standing side by side, worshipping them together changes the results of planetary movements to advantage though they are in adverse positions. Lord chandikeswara and Mother Chandikeswari bless devotees with wedding boon.
The temple came into existence with the grace of Mother Parvathi to whom Lord offered half of His body in this holy place. Hence, Lord is praised as Parvathi Easwarar-Parvatheeswarar. Mother is praised as Thava Kola Nayaki ? Mother Goodess in penance ? and also as Shantha Nayaki. She was furious earlier but became Shantha ? soft and merciful then. She is also praised as Mother Lalithambika. It is noteworthy that Lord Vishnu graces the devotees from His own shrine west of this place praised as Lord Sri Adikesava Perumal.


Temple History:

   A demon woman Madhalolai by name was subjected to the curse of Sage Durvasa as she caused hindrance to his penance.? She gave birth to two demon sons Ambaran and Amban.? She died after the delivery.? The demon sons grew cruel and arrogant as is natural to the group and began harassing the noble souls.? They sought asylum in the feet of Lord Shiva.? Lord just saw Mother with a smile.? Knowing His motive, Mother took the form an enticing virgin and appeared before the demons.? Both wanted to have Her hands.? Meantime, Lord Vishnu in the guise of an old man told them that two cannot marry one woman and only the mightier can have the choice.? Brothers began to fight against each other.? Ambaran won.? He came in search of Ambica who stood before him as a furious Kali with Her trident.? Shocked and afraid, he began to run.? But Devi chased him, pierced him with Her trident and did away with him.? Perumal-Lord Vishnu requested Lord Shiva to return His left to Mother.? Devi, shedding Her fury entered into a sandalwood forest, made a Linga of sand and began her penance.? At the ripe time, Lord appeared and took Mother Parvathi with Him.
