  AMBAKARATHUR - BHAIRAKALI TEMPLE

The legendary part of this holy shrine takes us to the Kritayuga, and the protaganists of this fascinating tale are Uma and Mahavishnu, who in their joint venture rid devas of the asurabadha. According to Puranas; once sage Durvasa, a great Siva bhakta met a blooming damsel named Madhulila during his aakasagamana going to avail the darsan of Lord Siva, his ishtadaivam. This frivolous girl asked his blessings for the birth of noble children. Being short tempered and further supplication seemed unworthy, he cursed her to get  noble children. The curse ran its course and she gave birth two sons - Ambaran and Amban. When she bewailed before Sukracharya, narrating her  misfortune, he advised them to meditate on Paramapureeswarar and get boons to take revenge on devas. They did and inauguated reign of terror, and tortured  their enemies day in and day out. Unable to stand against them. Devendra with all devas met Brahma, who in turn took them  to Vishnu. Explaining the difficulty all met Brahmapureeswarar. Listening to plight, he entrusted this onerous task to Uma and Vishnu, as he could not due to showering of boons on them already.
