  CHIDAMBARAM - SIVAKAMI AMMAN TEMPLE

The sanctum of Devi Sivakami Sundari lies to the left of NataraJa's shrine. Normally devotees reach the Nataraj sannidhi fast . The stone steps bunt to ascend the Chit Sabha, where Nataraja is installed are five in number and they mystically represent the five letter of the Panchak shara mantra 'OMNAMASIVAYA'.  The doors bear the embossed representation of the Sages Vyagrapada and PatanajalI.  After availing the darsan of Nataraj and realising the Chidambara Rahasam, visitors move to the amman sannidhi.

The SIvakamI amman koil lies in the first prakara and is equally rich in sculptural adornments. It is an independent temple possessing all the essential parts. The granie icon of the Mother adorned with dazzling diamond decked jewels and rustling silks lifts the souls and wrings veneration. The brightly illumined garha griha adorned with rave sculptural pieces along with the granite icon of the Mother in standing posture detains the devout visitors longer and transport them to the blissful world. Agamic puja is offered with elaborate rituals. Periodical festivals independent of the main shrine are celebrated with great zeal. Through lying in the vast campus of the Nataraja temple it has all the parts and functions as an independent temple. No visitors misses this miss-not treasure.

It lies in the heart of Chidambaram, accessible by walk from bus stand.
