Collage of the temple
She is principally a village guardian known as Mariamman,now known as Kamakshi Amman.The Kumbabhishegam was a lavish affair.My mom wants to make another trip after listening to stories about her glory. We finished the worship and headed off for lunch at Kariyakudi.This is the best places to eat at Mayavaram.We had pitlay,takali kai kootu,Neer more etc. The food satiated our appetites.On our way back we visited Chidambaram Natarajar Temple and thillai Kali temple.After our chidambaram visit we stopped for dinner at Sathguru Hotel in Pondicherry. We got back home around 1am the same day.We covered a distance of 585 kms. The minimum outstation charges for 225 kms is Rs10/kms. We paid Rs 6,000 plus taxes.(including night charges,Permit charges).On the whole it was a much anticipated and long delayed trip. Thanx to my moms initiative and constant prodding and of course thanx to the indispensable Sakti Vikatan which sparked of my maiden visit to my husband's kula deivam.My dad took the picture of goddess Kamakshi from Sakti Vikatan from his Sony cybershot W120.The other picture is a collage of Karuvazhaikarai temple pictures.
