MELMARUVATHUR

THE ORIGIN OF THE TEMPLE

The sacred place where the present shrine is located was a thickly grown forest, where even the cattle were dreaded to go. This and the adjoining land belongs to one Gopal Naiker of considerable means and status. Till 1966, it was not fully cultivated. In this wood, there was a neem tree exuding milk-white fluid. The cow-herds out of curiosity tasted and found it sweet. And lo! it cured certain ailments. In the devastating cyclone that occurred in 1966, it fell and brought to public notice an invaluable treasure - Swayambhu Linga, which is now found installed just below the image of MOTHER Adiparasakti. More or less at his juncture there heard an aerial voice near the house of Sri Gopal Naicker engaged in offering pujas to his house hold deity that the Swayumbhu Linga was to be installed in a -temple soon, for it was Sri Adiparasakti doing penance since ages in that form.

Moreover, Sri Bangaru Naicker is to be entrusted with everything for conducting pujas etc. he divine command was at once honored by building a shed for the time being and installing it there. In course of time, Bangaru Naicker by virtue of adoption as it were by the MOTHER, metamorphosed himself into the Pithadhipathi of the Adiparasakti Peetham. Due to countless miracles performed by him, the temple emerged as an All-Faith spiritual citadel of universal reputation.
