MOTHER KALI OF KODUNGALLUR

 

To the penitent Kovalan, she give her invaluable anklet to dispose of for turning a new leaf with the money obtained from selling it. When the dovelike Kovalan went out on that commission, he met a hawk in the form of a gold-smith, who after defrauding the queen's anklet was on the look-out to involving a gullible man to foist his guilt on him, and breathe freely. Kovalan fell into this net. The goldsmith showing the anklet to the King and succeeded in passing on his guilt to Kovalan. The power mad king ordered the execution of Kovalan sans enquiry and witness.

Hearing the death of her Lord, Kannaki transformed herself into Mahakali, and dashed into the court of the Pandyan king frightened the King and audience with her eyes splitting fire and mouth letting out flames. Dashing against the ground her another anklet filled with diamonds against the queen's loaded with pearls, she proved that her Lord was guiltless, and cursed death on the King and devastation to the Madurai city. The frightened king died in his throne, and the court and palace started falling and burning at once.
