Grama devathai in G N Chetty Street

The grama devathai pooja for the Panguni festival will be held on March 27 from 10 a.m. onwards.
It will be held at the Kolavizhi Amman Temple in G. N. Chetty Street, off Kutchery Road.

The image of kolavizhi amman in this temple is made of bronze.
It is said to be over 2000 years old, says pujari Dhanasekar.

The main deity here is Bhadrakali amman. The legend is that the kolavizhi amman's presence is to 'cool' the Bhadrakali.

This is a busy place. Unmarried girls pray for early marriage at the feet of varahi-swami.

On March 27, after the puja in the morning priests will carry the puja items to Sri Kapali Temple.
The ritual is held to pray that the fest be celebrated well and for the people's well-being.
