MADURANTAKAM

Mr. Place returned to the bungalow. Meanwhile news of his vision spread rapidly in the town and people gathered round the rest house. Mr. Place came out of his room and said: "The bund is not broken; nor will it ever be. I always believed that God is not the monopoly of the Christian Church. Today I am fully convinced. You may all go; tomorrow shall your Devi's shrine rise."

True to his words, Mr. Place had Devi's shrine built under his personal supervision. In memory of his services, the people of the town had the following inscription made, which can be seen even today, in Tamil and Telugu, "This act of charity goes to the credit of the Company Jagirdar Collector, Leonald Place."

Sri Rama Navami celebrations in the month of Panguni (March-April), lasting for 10 days, is the biggest festival in this temple. In the month of Ani (June-July) the Brahmotsavam of Karunakaramurthy is performed.
