Santoshi Maiya

Santoshi Mata
113,Arcot Road,Virugambakkam,Chennai-600092

My mom has undertaken Santoshi Mata ka vrat,hence we decided to visit her abode at Virugambakkam, Chennai on the 15th( Friday). She is an embodiment of happiness,hence the name Santoshi Mata.She is a symbol of prosperity,auspiciousness,hope and contentment.One can propitiate her by praying to her for 16 consecutive Fridays. A benevolent and a wish granting deity women specifically pray for marital harmony.The temple priest was very friendly and allowed me to click pictures of the temple.He was extremely congenial and seemed very content and happy like the Goddess herself.We also picked up a picture of the Goddess next to the temple and promptly installed it at home.Can contact the priest at 9444758984 for any queries.

  1. Hi, You have a beautiful blog. I loved to see the Temples and Gods in your blog. Hope you post more like this.

    Regarding the Poha dosa in my blog, The whole process needs 18-20 hours for fermentation. First it will ferment while soaking(before grinding) for 6 hours. after grinding it should be in warm place for 12 hours till you see it raise up. very long process though!!
