Parur, the famous historic town ruled by celebrated rajas in the past boasts of a holy shrine dedicated to Mother Saraswati, the Goddess of learning going by the popular name of Mookambikai. Its location and origin evoke eternal veneration and turns the listeners into devout bhaktas who prize learning above kingdom. It is situated amidst a tank, like the Hat Mandir of Sikhs at Amritsar. Just opposite the Mahadwara, there lie four big ancient banyan trees, the cool breeze wafting from them lulls the visitors and users them to the Mother's sannidhi on the viewless wings, as it were. Even a skeptic or agnostic, if ever he chances to enter into this spiritualized magnetic aura of this kshetra involuntarily joins his palms in token of full and unconditional acceptance of the divinity of the MOTHER and glory of her role as the presiding deity of Vignana. As it lies in a tank of 20 feet deep water, a bridge is provided for passage. Temple authorities maintain it with such spick and span that the water is used for abhishek purpose of the Mother. Kudos to the officers, whose sense of duty conscience is to be emulated in any place of worship worthy to be called so.

The legend of this place too is quite fascinating and drives home the truth that if divine injunctions are implemented, the world turns itself into heaven, making the earthly sojourn most relishable and cherishable, and daily existence imperishably imperious leading to Savujya mukti.
