  MARAIKKADU - SUNDARAPEETA NAYAKI TEMPLE

The ancient name of Tirumaraikkadu goes now by the fantastic awe-some name of Vedaranyam. In Puranas it is mentioned as Satyagiri and Adisethu. According to them, this place, and the presiding deity Siva were worshipped with unbounded devotion. It was then a thick forest, and so was called Vedavanyam and Marikkadu.

The temple built in the South Indian architectural design is vast in dimensions with sturdy prakaras, broad mahadwara surmounted by tall towers. And it resembles Tiruvarur temple in constructional pattern. The Mother's shrine stands to the right side of Siva's temple. It is one of the Sakti-pPeethas and the Mother is called Sundarapeetha Nayaki or Sundarapeetha Sundari. As is the name, so is the idol that hypnotises the viewers by her enchanting pleasant Sowmyavadana. She acquired the name of Varaprasadi due to lavish grant of boons on her adorers. Besides fulfilling the desires of the bhaktas, she relieves the evil effects of billisunyam, graha dosha and witch craft.
