KIRATAMARJARESWARAM

Hearing the description of the sanctity of the place, Goddess Ganga came to Villivakkam village, took a holy bath in Pundarika Pushkarani, worshipped
Kiratamarjareswarar and got herself absolved of all the accumulated sins left by human beings bathing in her waters.
Muktambikai is the name of the Goddess in the temple. The story goes that about 100 years ago, Sri Kumaraswami Mudaliar, the then landlord of Chunampet village, wasa great devotee of Kiratamarjareswarar and his consort Goddess Muktambikai. 

Even now the successors of the landlords are hereditary trustees of the temple. The temple possesses substantial landed endowments from the family of the landlords, including the lands where salt is manufactured. Kumaraswami Mudaliar used to spend most of his time in the temple in deep meditation. It so happened once that during the observance of ritualistic ceremonies, the left arm of the Goddess was accidentally hit and broken.
