Pathala Ponniamman Visit 3 Feb

This Goddess was found in a pit dug out for a well, hence she is called "Pathala Ponniamman".Her icon here is made out of Panchaloha(an alloy of five metals).We visited her on Thai Kirthigai, an ideal time to propitiate Lord Murugan.Hence, this deity was adorned beautifully.She occupies the centre of the temple and is flanked by her sons on either side.To her left is Lord Ganesh and to her right is Lord Karthikeya.The speciality of this temple is the shrine dedicated to her seven elder brothers,the Sapta Annanmaars.These elder brothers of Kali were born to Devaki,before the birth of Lord Krishna.This temple is situated in Pursawalkam and is 300 yrs old. This temple is also a part of a 2000 year old temple located at Pursawalkam known as Gangadheeshwarar.
