MOTHER KALI OF KODUNGALLUR

 

His efforts ended in deifying that gem of woman. She is now worshipped in the temple along with MOTHER Kali more or less on equal and same footing. All but due to her devotion to her wedded Lord. That is the glory of chastity and sanctity of Hindu Dharma.

The story begins in Pukhar, the capital of Cholas. There lived here two cultured families noted for their aristocratic way of life, excelling that of many ruling princes. Their wealth was of no mean distinction. Each had a young member ready for marriage, Kannaki, the sublime, domestic type of woman was wedded to Kovalan, the romantic young cultured man of his day. The match was deemed extremely matched in status, standing, reputation etc. 

The river of their romance flowed majestically and smoothly like the Ganges and delighted all. But there joined them a jingling rivulet on their way. She was Madhavi belonging to a class that glitters day in and day out. Poor Kovalan lured by her gurgling giggle was caught in the whirl pool of Madhavi's charms. Kannaki like Saraswathi flowed underground for sometime. Soon after denuding Kovalan, Madhavi changed her route. Kannaki seeing the stagnated water getting deried up cleansed it with her pure water and diverted the course, for keeping up honour and retrieving the former glory.
