 MELMARUVATHUR - AADIPARASAKTHI

To the right of the main shrine there lies a margosa tree held in high esteem; for it fulfils the desires of those whose marriages are unduly delayed and blessed children to the barren women. The last object of adoration is located in a small shrine right across the road and just opposite the main temple. It is here installed the image of Adarvana Bhadrakali and worshipped to be relieved of the evil effect of sunyam, sorcery etc. Only these few account for the ever growing popularity of this shrine. More than these adorable deities, its traditions deserve special study. Of the many at least six merit elaboration. Among them Angapradakshanam, red garb, Arulvak personal worship and lrumudi deserve special mention.

The temple celebrates many festivals round the year. Among them Adipura, Chitra Pournami, Thai Pusam, Varsha Pirappu and Adigalar's Birthday top the list and rank first. Christmas, Easter, Newyear's day, Mahavir Jayanthi are also celebrated with fanfare due. Lacks of people attend them when peity and gaiety vie with each another making the temple Bhuloka Swargam.

It lies exactly at at 92 km. off Madras on 47 National High way accessible by bus and train.
