The Union territory of Pondicherry though came under the administration of France and imbibed the French fragrance to some extent, it retained its rich Indian ness and kept aloft the banner of Hindu Dharma ever fluttering. There are scores of superb monuments declaring proudly its land's glory, and among them temples come first. Both in and out of Pondicherry its capital there are great, ancient shrines that deserve visitation and adoration. An eighteenth century temple dedicated to Mother Mariamman lying in the coastal village called Virampattinam is luring devotees throughout the year. It is popular as Sengaghuneeramman and famous for extending succor to the star-crossed people. She is reputed for her liberal grant of boons to the pious devotees and so is exercising her hold. on the mass particularly. Epidemic diseases are scared at her very name itself and people out of their steadfast belief and rich experience rush to her sannidhi when confronted with problems of all types. Regular daily worship is offered with great devotional fervor. During Brahmotsav and Muthupallak festival celebrated for days in the July-August, thousands of devotees visit and offer special prayers and redeem the vows taken.
